A Culture of Inclusion

 

At Gannett, inclusivity is not just a mindset, it’s a continuous journey for our organization and employees at all levels. Inclusion, Diversity and Equity are core pillars of our organization and influence all that we do, from recruiting, development and retention, to day to day operations including hiring, onboarding, education, leadership training and professional development. We foster an environment that lifts all voices and welcomes everyone to take part in our journey into the future where every employee is heard, respected, and given an equal opportunity to thrive.

We are accountable and committed to focusing on greater inclusion of Women, People of Color, LGBTQ+, those with Differing Abilities, those having military experience, and other underrepresented groups across our workforce. Beginning with our Board of Directors and our Executive Leadership Team, this commitment extends throughout the organization.

Being The Change

In our approach to setting our Inclusion, Diversity & Equity goals and targets, we acknowledge that we need to change the way we operate and improve our workforce diversity. We’re confident this combination will help us build and maintain a culture of belonging.

Our Goals by 2025:
