Diversity & Inclusion

Our mission is to foster a culture of inclusiveness, which holds leadership accountable for creating, developing, promoting and championing a diverse, multicultural workforce where all employees can achieve and contribute to the company's success.

We have sixty-five Employee Resource Group chapters in thirteen locations worldwide, which harness the diverse creativity of their members to develop employees personally and professionally, connect the groups' respective constituencies to the business, and drive results. Formally recognized as an employee-led initiative, our ERGs host hundreds of events each year. “Diversity & Inclusion is a strategic priority to be addressed with intentionality, accountability and dedication of resources.” – Bob Bakish

From our HQ in the US:

The focus of the Diversity Councils is to foster a positive and inclusive work environment. It is our goal that Simon & Schuster becomes an Employer of Choice, so that both prospective employees and authors of varied backgrounds will be attracted to Simon & Schuster and view the company as a superior publisher of quality books.

The Councils are comprised of employees from all divisions and levels of the organization, which supports the efforts of the company to develop an inclusive, respectful, and effective cross-cultural workplace. Each council member serves on a core committee and meet regularly to focus on the following initiatives:

  • Staffing, Retention and Career Development

  • Associates Program

  • Community Involvement

  • Diversity Events
