Mediavine has taken a number of steps to champion its diversity and inclusion efforts over the last 14 months including launching a racial justice campaign (We Stand With You), holding internal town hall meetings to learn how to sensitively serve and support the BIPOC and LGBT+ communities, and diversifying hiring efforts. Additionally, the company administered two employee surveys—The Trust Index™ Survey and Best Places to Work survey by Quantum Workplace— to better understand employees and gauge wants and needs.
