STAT’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee is composed of staff members across the company. Here is our mission statement:

The mission of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee at STAT is to make STAT better reflect the world that we live in by:

  • Diversifying our sourcing for news stories, with a focus on historically underrepresented populations.
  • Amplifying more diverse voices — especially those of women and people of color — with speaking opportunities at events.
  • Creating a more inclusive work environment where everyone feels:
    • They are heard and belong.
    • Valued as their authentic selves.
    • Free to speak up without judgement.
  • Supporting STAT’s goal to further diversify and broaden our audience and event attendees.
  • Diversifying the STAT team, with the goal of having our workforce and management reflect the diversity of U.S. society more broadly.
  • Diversifying the sorts of stories we’re telling, to more deeply cover issues of racism, health inequities, and social justice.

The D&I Committee is committed to:

  • Regularly re-evaluate the hiring and recruiting processes to ensure that diversity, equity, and inclusion are held as top priorities in all decisions.
  • Ensuring that the concerns and opinions of all staff will be valued and that STAT leadership will be receptive to that feedback.
  • Keeping the staff regularly informed of its work, through publicly sharing meeting notes and details of any initiatives.
