“Our commitment to a diverse and inclusive organization is not based on current events, but is and has always been, a part of our ethos,” adds Angela Persaud, Head of People, G/O Media. “We are inspired by the movements happening outside of our doors – Black Lives Matter, Trans and LGBTQ+ Lives Matter, but having a diverse, equitable and inclusive employee base isn’t episodic for the company. Support for, and empowerment of, our company’s diversity is a core part of our foundation and culture, and something we continuously strive to enhance.”
