Careers Investors

At Scripps, we are committed to a diverse and inclusive culture that reflects the communities we serve.

We are intentional about creating an environment where employees, our audiences and other stakeholders feel valued and inspired to reach their full potential and make authentic connections.

To successfully deliver on this commitment of inclusivity, we must understand and reflect the values and perspectives those around us embody. That process begins by looking inward to build and celebrate a diverse and inclusive workplace.

Scripps leaders believe that an equitable and inclusive culture is not only the right thing to do, it is a business imperative. Through the lens of empathy and respect, we connect with our audiences to tell better stories. With compassion and understanding, we provide opportunities for our employees to grow and develop their careers. And with an eye to the future, we seek new and diverse perspectives through our recruiting and hiring practices.

It is only with the right people that we can do the right thing – for our viewers, our communities, our employees and our business.
