Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion

We encourage all candidates to apply to POLITICO. POLITICO is committed to diversity and we make inclusivity a priority in our workspace. As a publication with global ambitions, our teams must reflect, understand and be able to bring to life the worlds we cover. Our organization strives to improve the representation from marginalized groups and create a culture where their voices are heard and there is equity. We've established smarter hiring policies to ensure better representation across the publication, created structures to build more representation in leadership roles, and committed to providing development opportunities specific to underrepresented groups. On October 1, 2021, we launched our 2021 Diversity and Inclusion Data to hold ourselves accountable in our commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and to promote further transparency of the media industry’s demographics.

POLITICO’s diversity and inclusion efforts expand on the work initiated years ago by the editorial Pipeline Committee, which has helped advance newsroom diversity throughout the D.C. area, especially through the POLITICO Journalism Institute. It also has helped expand The POLITICO Fellows, editorial internships and related initiatives. Through these efforts, our editors and reporters are training the next generation of journalists and making D&I gains in our own newsroom as well. Our broader initiatives are driven by POLITICO’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee, which gives voice to all employees through surveys, events and other platforms.
