We Shape Our Communities
Equity, diversity, inclusion, and corporate social responsibility are moral and business imperatives. A strong organization recognizes that engaging in the fundamental issues of equality and fairness is not only the smart thing to do, but it is also the right thing to do. We see advocacy and inclusion as a key part to our success, and our approach to these critical issues are rooted in how we address our workforce, programs, content, suppliers, and community.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
WarnerMedia is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion, as moral and business imperatives. It is essential that our workforce, 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. In September 2018, WarnerMedia announced a Production Diversity Policy which included the commitment to report on our diversity and inclusion efforts annually.
We are committed to preserving a culture of opportunity, inclusion and respect. At all levels of the company, we hold ourselves accountable through a performance management process that includes how we (individually and collectively) perform in the area of diversity and inclusion.

WarnerMedia prides itself on being a pro-social force for good in our communities and our world. Our diverse and original content helps to deepen the conversation on issues that matter in society. We act ethically and with integrity and work to reduce our environmental impact as we serve an increasingly global audience. Across the board, we find ways to help develop the next generation of storytellers from diverse backgrounds. And our employees give back to those in our communities; civic engagement is a key part of our culture. Some recent social impact efforts include:
It’s critical that we take active roles in our communities. Being informed, engaged citizens helps ensure that we move forward as a society. Whether it’s filling out your census form, applying to vote, bringing others to the polls, or making sure you’re aware of the issues of the day, WarnerMedia is here to help. Visit our civic engagement resource center to see how you can help move democracy forward.
All of our lives have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Across our company and our brands, WarnerMedia is taking steps to mitigate the harm wherever we can. From supporting our productions that have taken an unexpected hiatus to making charitable donations to those similarly situated, we’ve been dutifully helping those in immediate need. We’re also making sure our brands and our content can get to those who need it most while they remain home to save lives. And we’ve partnered with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to assist those who are struggling with depression and other forms of mental illness during these trying times. Please see our complete list of how we’re helping during this crisis here.
Via our programming, our culture, and our volunteerism, WarnerMedia has long been supporters of the LGBTQIA+ community. Learn how WarnerMedia celebrated Pride 2020 here.
Business Resource Groups
Our Business Resource Groups (BRGs) at WarnerMedia are built on the foundation of developing careers, fostering culture, and driving connection, and are led by our employees based on shared pursuits, purpose, identities and interests.
With scale, resources and access across our company, membership in a BRG allows members to transcend their daily roles and become part of a larger company-wide vision - defining the future of media.
Designed to propel our leaders to the next level, our groups drive business through recruitment, retention and audience wide engagement. And have the power to shape our culture and move people in lasting ways.
