From content to causes, from employee development to diversifying our suppliers, we recognize the importance of partnering with organizations and content creators around the globe. We work with organizations and people who share our commitment to diversity, inclusion, equity and belonging.

We partner with several women’s advocacy organizations, including the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, which works collaboratively within the entertainment industry to create gender balance, The Female Quotient and ColorComm, organizations that help women advance and thrive in the workplace, and the Women’s Sports Foundation, which enables girls and women to reach their potential in sport and life. Paramount and our Women+ ERG also support a host of organizations that serve women and families, such as Girls Inc., Good Sheppard, Hestia (UK) and Safe Horizon, an organization that helps women and children affected by domestic violence. 

Paramount partners with a wide range of organizations to ensure diversity is visible in our content. 21CP Solutions, a noted law enforcement and public safety advisory group, consults with the writing teams on CBS’ police, crime and legal drama series. In addition, CBS Studios and the NAACP forged a multi-year partnership to develop and produce scripted, unscripted and documentary content for linear television networks and streaming platforms.

Fairness, accuracy and inclusivity are hallmarks of our journalism, whether on the “CBS Evening News with Norah O'Donnell,” on our newly launched “CBS Mornings,” on local CBS Stations newscasts, or news specials produced by BET, Nickelodeon and MTV. We are proud of our support for and long relationship with the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA), the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ), and NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists, preeminent organizations representing and advocating for journalists from underrepresented groups.

We also partner with professional organizations to provide employees with training, leadership development, and career-pathing strategies. Our partners in this effort include the National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC), Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT), Women in Cable Telecommunications (WICT), the Association of Latino Professionals For America (ALPFA), and ADCOLOR, an organization that champions inclusion in the creative industries.

We partner with and support organizations that promote equality, understanding, justice and leadership. During the spate of attacks against Asian American and Pacific Islander communities in 2021, we supported, and our AMP ERG worked with groups such as CAPE, an organization that champions Asian American and Pacific Islander artists and leaders in entertainment and media. Our enduring work with groups such as Asia Society, National Action Network (NAN), the Urban League and the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund was pivotal during and following the social justice and police brutality protests after George Floyd’s murder in 2020. We also continue to partner with and support the Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute,the Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies (APAICS) and RespectAbility. During Black History Month in 2021, the BEAT+ ERG partnered with RespectAbility for an event that explored Black disability representation in media.

We are proud to have strong relationships with organizations at the forefront of advocating for the LGBTQ+ community. Since 2005, we have been recognized annually by the Human Rights Campaign with a 100% score on its Corporate Equality Index for our unyielding support of LGBTQ+ employees. GLAAD, the LGBTQ+ media advocacy organization, has honored our content on many occasions, including “The L Word®” on Showtime and “Star Trek: Discovery” on Paramount+. We've also been an active GLAAD #Spirit Day participant for several years and, in 2020, Showtime launched “Queer to Stay: An LGBTQ+ Business Preservation Initiative” to support and preserve businesses serving the LGBTQ+ community, with a focus on LGBTQ+ people of color, women and the transgender community. Paramount and our Proud ERG work with LGBTQ+ groups like GLSEN, The Trevor Project and Stonewall (UK).



We have made commitments to equity by signing on to initiatives such as Business in the Community Race at Work Charter, Disability Confident, and Audeliss and INvolve's open letter supporting Black Lives Matter in the UK. Channel 5 in the UK is a member of Creative Diversity Network's Project Diamond, focused on increasing diversity in the TV industry. Paramount Australia and New Zealand launched a Reconciliation Action Plan to support reconciliation efforts with Australia's First Peoples. Additionally, the MTV Staying Alive Foundation released research studies by LSHTM in South Africa and Tulane University in Nigeria, highlighting the positive impact of MTV Shuga on viewers' behavior and perceptions.



Paramount is fully committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We ensure diverse suppliers have opportunities in our supply chain and actively engage with MWBEs to drive business results and address inequities.
