“TEGNA is committed to accelerating the pace of racial diversity across our company and our leadership. The initiatives we began implementing in 2020, with input from our D&I Working Group, have put us on a solid path to reaching our long-term goal of ensuring all TEGNA stations and business units are as diverse as the communities we serve.”
– Grady Tripp, TEGNA Chief Diversity Officer

Work in a place where your unique experiences are valued and where you can be your authentic self.

Our purpose to serve the greater good of our communities is our guiding light, and our values of inclusion, integrity, innovation, impact and results drive our stations and employees to be a force for positive change. In fact, our employees feel that working at TEGNA isn’t just a job, but that their work contributes to their personal purpose.

Inclusive Journalism
We are committed to ensuring our content reflects the diverse communities we represent. Our content teams (news, digital and marketing employees) take part in an Inclusive Journalism program, developed in partnership with diverse leaders at TEGNA and The Poynter Institute, to tackle unconscious bias in news reporting and content development and to address how coded language contributes to racial stereotypes.

Action We’ve Taken

  • We’ve set quantifiable five-year goals to increase Black, Indigenous and People of Color representation in content teams, news leadership and management roles.
  • With the catalyst of the social justice movement, we committed to completing mandatory unconscious bias training and created a companywide Diversity, Equity and Inclusion employee group.
  • Signed the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge.
  • We launched a Diversity & Inclusion Working Group comprised of employees from across TEGNA to: increase racial diversity in key leadership and influential positions; ensure racially diverse perspectives and respectfully valued, sought after, and embraced and identify and combat inherent unconscious bias through education and training.
  • To help shed light on human rights issues, the TEGNA Foundation made special grants to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Chinese for Affirmative Action and Asian Americans Advancing Justice.
  • Added Juneteenth as a paid company holiday.
