Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
We strive to be inclusive in our publishing and our organization and to celebrate vibrant voices, cultures, and ideas.
At ABRAMS, we are committed to working to create an inclusive, fair, equitable, and diverse workplace where all employees feel valued and respected.
We see individual differences as a real source of strength—both in terms of our culture and our commercial and literary pursuits. We strive to make our company a place where everyone can be themselves, maximize their personal and professional potential, and simultaneously achieve our business goals.
Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiative includes the three key objectives below. These are the priorities where our on-going actions will further our inclusivity efforts:
- Workforce Diversity — we will recruit from a diverse, qualified group of candidates to add a wider range of thinking and perspective to our teams
- Workplace Inclusion — we will foster a culture that encourages collaboration, flexibility and fairness enabling all employees to contribute to their potential and increase retention
- Publishing Accountability — we will identify and breakdown systemic barriers for marginalized voices by embedding diversity and inclusion in policies and practices; we will equip leaders with the ability to both manage diversity and be accountable for the results
People are at the heart of what we do at ABRAMS. We understand that publishing diverse books from authors with varied backgrounds is best achieved when our team is reflective of the readers we serve and the world we inhabit. Every employee contributes to our company culture and the success of our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiative is dependent upon us all at every level of the company.
