Our Commitment to Inclusion & Diversity
Companies talk about the importance of an 'inclusion and diversity' strategy. At McGraw Hill it is a core part of our mission – to accelerate learning through intuitive, engaging, efficient and effective experiences. By relying on the unique skills, backgrounds and viewpoints of our employees we are able to have a truly global perspective.
Diverse and inclusive teams are critical to helping us be more creative in our approach, better understand our customers' needs, and develop programs and materials that reflect the students we serve. Our colleagues bring a wealth of ideas, experiences and perspectives to their work every day, making the journey and the outcome exciting for all of us.
What Inclusion & Diversity Means to Us
Our mission is to build an inclusive culture where team members continuously learn, give back, and achieve extraordinary results. Our focus on inclusion and diversity will ensure that our team members, products, and customer experiences are relevant and represent the diverse population of customers we serve.
To help our leadership become role models for building an inclusive culture and diverse workforce, they are asked to attend a two-session training program delivered by a diversity, equity and inclusion firm.
