Healthline Media’s Guiding Approach
Everyone deserves an equal chance to live their best, healthiest lives.
Diversity, equity, inclusion, and a sense of belonging are core to our values at Healthline Media. We’re working to make an impact on the health of the world today — and as we hope to see it in the future.
We take direct action to dismantle the disparities that exist today for our audience, our partners, and our people. We proactively seek out diverse voices and perspectives in the people we hire and the partners we collaborate with to enrich our health coverage, amplify unheard stories, and move the conversation forward.
We’re here to help create a stronger, healthier world for all people — and all means all.
“At Healthline, we prioritize creating an environment where all feel safe and supported. We actively engage and amplify a variety of voices, identities, and perspectives across the health and wellness spectrum to ensure that our culture and our content reflects the diversity we see in our everyday world.”
