BEST PRACTICES

According to Time Warner, “Cultivating diversity of our content, products and people is a business imperative for Time Warner.”

One way the company cultivates diversity is through its new OneFifty program, which the company uses to create content for its audiences. Time Warner seeks out diverse talent to keep its content new and appealing to its diverse audiences. This program links diversity and philanthropic efforts directly to the organization’s goals.

The Time Warner Foundation invests in non-profit partnerships with organizations that reach diverse communities. In 2015, one of itspartners, the Public Theater in New York City, launched the world theatrical premiere of Hamilton, by Lin-Manuel Miranda, before it became a Broadway hit.

Time Warner continues to demonstrate leadership in programming and workplace equality for the LGBT community. Time Warner has scored 100percentfor nineconsecutive years on the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index.

Time Warner’s operating divisions have also made bold moves with diverse talents. Warner Brothers signed deals this past year with diverse content creators, including: NBA star LeBron James and his company SpringHill Entertainment; diverse TV producers, Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil; and novelist/scriptwriter, Suzanne Allain. HBO launched the HBO Access Writing Fellowship in 2015 for talented diverse storytellers and will continue the HBO Access Directing Fellowship in 2016 for developing and supporting diverse new filmmakers.
