Diversity & Inclusion

The Post strives to provide its readers with high-quality, trustworthy news and information while constantly innovating. That mission is best served by a diverse, multi-generational workforce with varied life experiences and perspectives. All cultures and backgrounds are welcomed.

To further advance our commitment to these fundamental values and ensure transparency, we are releasing our second public demographics report and will continue to do so on an annual basis. The data in this report is current as of June 30, 2022. Future publication of this report will occur annually.

This report provides both snapshots and trended data views of the gender and racial composition of our workforce over a five-year period. In addition to organization-wide data, breakouts for News & Editorial and Business are included.
