diversity, equity & inclusion

Paramount is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. We believe that to be the best creators and storytellers, our company must reflect, celebrate and elevate the diversity of our audiences.

Our DEI approach is based on our five pillars: Leadership Engagement, Employee Investment, Workplace Initiatives, Content Diversification, and Community Linkages.

Leadership Engagement


DEI is a shared journey that starts at the top with our leadership team and Board of Directors. With transparency and accountability as key requirements governing the way we operate, these leaders drive the policies, programs, and initiatives that carry our commitment forward. Paramount’s Global Inclusion Advisory Committee (GIAC) is composed of senior leaders and meets quarterly to discuss key DEI issues and business initiatives.

Employee Investment


We embed DEI into every aspect of our employee experience—including specific programs to strengthen how we attract, develop, retain, and measure our progress. This work is supported by many internal stakeholders, including our dynamic Employee Resource Groups and Inclusivity Councils.

Workplace Initiatives


We continue to create policies and programs to ensure our workforce is diverse and to foster a culture where employees can thrive and feel empowered to be contributors at the company.

Content Diversification


As a pioneer in content that represents and appeals to diverse audiences, we are also resolute that diversity, equity and inclusion must be reflected within our content and behind the scenes. Our suite of talent initiatives develop and sustain a pipeline of diverse creators. We also work to ampilfy the voices of marginalized communities and condemn all forms of hate.

Community Linkages


From content to causes, from developing our employees to diversifying our suppliers, we recognize the importance of partnering with organizations and content creators around the globe. We establish and grow meaningful relationships with our partners, and provide financial, educational and community support to marginalized communities, especially in times of cultural unrest or crisis. 

Community Linkages
  • Workforce Demographics

    A diverse employee base that reflects the communities where we live and work is a business imperative.

  • Supplier Diversity

    We ensure diverse suppliers have opportunities in our supply chain and actively engage with MWBEs to drive business results and address inequities.

  • Careers

    We need diverse, passionate people who want to leave a positive mark on culture. Join us and help create the future of media.
