Commitment to diversity

Issue Media Group (IMG) is committed to fostering and preserving a culture of inclusion and diversity. We embrace and encourage differences in gender, race, ethnicity, color, religion, sexual orientation, age, marital or family status, and all other characteristics that diversify its staff, including all full-time employees, contractors, contributors and vendors. Furthermore, we believe that an interest in diversity should extend outward and be reflected across the span of our work and relationships.

We practice inclusive reporting and storytelling that accurately and fairly portrays the communities in which we work. We seek out and include sources that are diverse in age, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic class, political opinion, and social ideas. We uphold this belief in all of our reporting and projects.

We strive to apply this commitment to diversity across all employment practices, including recruitment and selection, compensation and benefits, professional development and training, promotions, and terminations. By encouraging communication, participation, and a respect and understanding for the surrounding community, IMG seeks to create a safe, open work environment for staff of all backgrounds.
