Our community is comprised of people from different geographical areas, representing a variety of ethnicities, religious beliefs, values, socioeconomic backgrounds, and points of view. We may be physically different, have different intellectual interests, or have different abilities and we strive to not only welcome such differences, but grow and learn because of them.
At KIRO 7, our focus on diversity and inclusion is an essential component of our company’s core values. We are committed to having a diverse workforce that reflects the community we serve while also engaging and strengthening that community through partnerships and service.
As the long-time partner of Seattle Pride, KIRO 7 is proud to celebrate and support our diverse and inclusive community. Later this month we look forward to sharing the stories of this year’s deserving Pride Foundation scholarship and grant recipients. Then next month the station will provide a Livestream of the Seattle Pride Parade on Sunday, June 30th, followed by a Pride Special later that evening.
These values are also embodied by KIRO 7’s parent company, Cox Enterprises. In recognition of the company's diversity policies and the diverse makeup of our executive suites and boards, Forbes magazine named Cox to its second-annual list of America's Best Employers for Diversity in 2019. Cox also was recognized in 2019 as one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality by the Human Rights Campaign.
