Time Warner makes its business goals very clear on itscorporate website,stating: “At Time Warner, we believe that in an increasingly multicultural world, we must expand our efforts to reach and understand the diverse people and cultures we serve. A key to our success is hiring and retaining a staff that is as diverse as our audiences.”The company understands the importance of recruiting and retaining the best talent and one that is reflective of the diverse audiences it serves globally, stating: “In Film and Television and the Internet, Time Warner provides millions of people with a broad range of products and services that reflect the diverse backgrounds, interests and cultures of our customers. In addition, the company’s networks provide multiethnic and foreign language programming from producers throughout the world.”

To that end, the company’s efforts to create a talent pipeline, especially for women, are showing significant progress. Time Warner earned a spot on the DiversityInc Top 50 list for the sixth year in a row and moved up despite an increase in participation of 31%.
