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, LGBTQIA+, 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:

  • Connector.

Hey all - Happy Tuesday! 

My name is Ian, and I’ll be taking over the page today to show you what the heck I do on a day-to-day basis. 

For starters, I’m an Account Executive with @enquirer and @localiq. As an AE, I work with our Sales Engineers and Client Success Managers (some of whom you’ve heard from already) to make sure we are providing data-driven marketing strategies to our business partners. 

Out of office, you’ll probably be able to find me on the golf course, enjoying local breweries, or trying to keep up with my 3-year-old twin daughters. 

I’ll update the story throughout the day as well!

Hello everyone! My name is Earl Hopkins and I’ll Hello everyone! My name is Earl Hopkins and I’ll be taking over the Instagram page today. Here’s a little bit about me:⁣
⁣
Like Bernardi, I’m quickly approaching one year as a member of The USA TODAY NETWORK. I got my start as an education reporter at @courierpress, and have recently accepted a new role as a general assignment reporter at @columbusdispatch — my hometown paper!! ⁣
⁣
At the Dispatch, I’ll be covering breaking news, local government, arts and culture and other news beats. I’m greatly appreciative of this company and credit many of the senior-level reporters and editors I’ve met for molding me into the journalist I am today. I’d urge any one looking to learn the fundamentals of the news industry and advance their careers to join this amazing network 💪🏾
⁣
When I’m not in the newsroom, you can find me searching for vintage pieces at local thrift stores, eating out at hole-in-the-wall restaurants or scrolling through Instagram 😅 ⁣

Hello everyone and happy Thursday! My name is Bern Hello everyone and happy Thursday! My name is Bernardi Vargas Vila and I will be taking over the page today. First, a little bit about me and what I do:

Quickly approaching my one year with Gannett & The USATODAY NETWORK, I work as a Client Success Manager in Advertising & Marketing. This means I manage, optimize & execute strategic solutions to best help my clients grow their business. Often times, through analytics, research, copywriting and collaboration with my teammates. I genuinely love working for Gannett and would highly recommend the company to anyone looking to either develop or advance their career.

When I'm not working on advertising campaigns, I am either studying to finish my master's degree from @newhousesu or enjoying the sunny [stormy] Florida weather here in Jacksonville (Duuuuuuvaaaal). Lastly, it wouldn't be an authentic post without me mentioning something sports related so go Heat 🔥🧹

Special thanks to @amdriehaus for the headshot! #LifeAtUSATN #30daysofnextgenforward
