People: Expand the Diversity of VoicesA diverse group of people working at Investopedia is essential to us being the most complete and inclusive financial education and news resource. We will continue to improve our recruiting and talent-sourcing efforts to ensure equality of opportunity for roles at Investopedia. The outcome that we expect to see, over time, will be represented in the makeup of our staff and contributors. Our goal is to reach at least 40% BIPOC editorial contributors and staff, including at least 15% Black contributors and staff. We will communicate our progress regularly.

People: Continue Education for ContributorsAs part of our ongoing internal education program for Investopedia staff and its contributors, the Dotdash Meredith Anti-Bias Review Board offers training workshops intending to educate ourselves about the challenges and experiences of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other communities. We hope these educational sessions can help us address those issues in our workplace and improve our content to better inform our readers. In 2023, we pledge to continue these lessons quarterly.
Content: Create Timeless, Inclusive Financial ContentOver the last two years, we have reviewed and updated 14,000 articles on Investopedia to be inclusive. In 2023, we will work with the Dotdash Meredith Anti-Bias Review Board to review all new educational articles on an ongoing basis to ensure it is inclusive and free of bias.

These organizations address the effects of systemic and institutional racism by expanding career opportunities in finance and building financial literacy skills. We are working to give them a platform and resources to aid in those efforts. We will continue to partner with these organizations and lend our influence, voice, and reach to at least one other organization aimed at furthering diversity and inclusivity in the financial sector.
