News Corp – Corporate Partner Spotlight

What is News Corp’s approach to diversity?
At News Corp, we appreciate the importance of creating an environment in which all of our employees can feel valued, included and empowered to bring great ideas to the table. We recognize that each employee’s unique experiences, perspectives, and viewpoints across our various companies are critical to creating products that engage and inspire customers all over the world. Therefore, our goal is to foster an environment that is an incubator for great ideas, is attractive to the best talent, and that creates a profound sense of pride across our Company.

Our diversity and inclusion efforts focus on:

  • Leading and managing inclusively – embracing different cultures, ethnicities, genders and sexual orientations
  • Creating a work environment that fosters growth and advancement
  • Engaging with our audiences in a way that reflects and respects their unique perspectives and experiences.

How long has News Corp been a corporate partner of CUP’s and why does your firm value this relationship?
This is News Corp’s first year as a CUP corporate partner. We are in early discussions with CUP to unearth creative ways to give greater exposure of our brands, such as HarperCollins and Wall Street Journal, and their innovative products and services, to the next generation of diverse business leaders.

Additionally, having access to CUP’s robust leadership programs and networking events, provides News Corp with an opportunity to attract great talent, and expose our existing employees to thought leaders and industry experts who will help to advance their careers.

How do you think CUP will have the greatest impact?
CUP has uniquely positioned itself as a leading authority in empowering, educating, enlightening and engaging the next generation of diverse leaders.  With this groundbreaking approach to professional development and its commitment to connecting and mobilizing diverse professionals across a variety of industries, CUP has already had a significant impact on the growth and progress of its members, corporate partners, and the industries in which they work.  As businesses continue to navigate the ever-changing demands of today’s and tomorrow’s workforce, the development and evolution of programs such as CUP’s Executive Leadership Program and its Seat at the Table initiative will become increasingly important resources to diverse professionals and businesses alike.
