Our company prides itself on being the place where the world's most talented creators and journalists tell their stories.
Purposeful Storytelling is about our diverse and original content that helps to deepen the conversation on issues that matter in society.
Engaging with Impact is about the many rich and varied ways we engage with our communities, including helping to develop the next generation of storytellers from diverse backgrounds. It is also about how our employees give back, which is a key part of our culture.
Creating Responsibly and Sustainably means we act ethically and with integrity and work to reduce our environmental impact as we serve an increasingly global audience.
On September 5, 2018, WarnerMedia announced the industry's first Diversity and Inclusion policy:
WarnerMedia companies, Warner Bros., HBO and Turner, have long been committed to diversity and inclusion as moral and business imperatives. It is essential that our content and creative partners reflect the diversity of our society and the world around us. Together with other production companies, networks, guilds, unions, talent agencies and others in the industry, we all must ensure there is greater inclusion of women, people of color, the LGBTQ+ community, those with disabilities and other underrepresented groups in greater numbers both in front of and behind the camera.
For our part, WarnerMedia pledges to use our best efforts to ensure that diverse actors and crew members are considered for film, television and other projects, and to work with directors and producers who also seek to promote greater diversity and inclusion in our industry. To that end, in the early stages of the production process, we will engage with our writers, producers and directors to create a plan for implementing this commitment to diversity and inclusion on our projects, with the goal of providing opportunities for individuals from under-represented groups at all levels. And, we will issue an annual report on our progress. See our 2018 Diversity and Inclusion Interim Report here.
The companies of WarnerMedia have a historic and proven commitment to diversity and inclusion. But there is much more we can do, and we believe real progress can be made in the industry. We will work with our partners in the entertainment community to make this commitment a reality.
