According to Time Warner, “Cultivating diversity — of content, products and people — is a business imperative for Time Warner.”
Time Warner is a visible supporter of the LGBT community, and the company has continued to demonstrate leadership in programming and workplace equality for the LGBT community. Time Warner has scored 100% for 10 consecutive years on the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index, and for eight consecutive years, the company has hosted the HRC CEI Awards, which are given to companies with a 100 percent rating.
The company has also shown more diversity in its content on the big screen as well as television. HBO’s 2016 documentary “The Trans List” explored the lives of Americans who identify as transgender. And DC Entertainment’s critically acclaimed movie “Suicide Squad” successfully featured an all-inclusive diverse cast, including two African American main characters, one male and one female, accompanied by another female protagonist.
Time Warner is also a sponsor of the AAPD (American Association of People with Disabilities) and their launch of the 2017 Disability Rights Storytellers Fellowship, which provides an opportunity for an individual with a disability to learn to apply skills in digital media storytelling and disability advocacy.
Chairman and CEO
“At Time Warner, advancing diversity in both our workforce and the content we create and share is a business priority. Without cultivating new voices and tapping into diverse talent, we would not be able to fulfill our mission of delivering great storytelling to an increasingly global and multicultural audience.”
Chief Diversity Officer and SVP, Cultural Investments
“Our success as a business is directly correlated to our ongoing efforts to attract diverse talent and maintain a progressive and inclusive environment where employees can thrive, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity or sexual orientation. Time Warner’s diverse workplace strengthens our ability to create our award-winning content that resonates with audiences across the globe.”
