Our initiative for better

Together we are strong—that’s why we created the Better Together initiative. 

Our goal is to strengthen our communities and company culture through focused programs that attract diverse talent and promote inclusion and equity through education, resources and community impact.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are part of our core values, shape our culture, and drive our business. We continue to build and refine our strategy to further our commitment.

We celebrate diverse cultures and backgrounds by presenting positive role models, telling diverse success stories, commemorating heritage, and fostering dialogue on a variety of platforms to create powerfully engaging content that makes a real difference in people’s lives.
