Join Meredith and your fellow ONA21 attendees and Career Day participants for a 45-minute networking event focused on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives. Hear perspectives from senior leaders from across this leading media company about DEI through the lens of these seven Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) at Meredith:

  • A3 (Asian/Asian American/Pacific Islander)
  • :BLACKPRINT (Black/African American)
  • HOLA (Latinx/Hispanic)
  • Media Upstarts (Gen Z and Millennials)
  • OUTSPOKEN (LGBTQ+)
  • Women@Meredith
  • Women in Tech

After a welcome from Diane L. Parker, vice president, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Meredith, the event will break out into a round-robin format that will allow attendees to hear from five pairs of leaders in 45 minutes with time for questions and connections.

This event is open to all — whether you’re a new professional looking for your first position, exploring a job change (they're hiring!) or working on your own organization’s DEI efforts, there is plenty to learn and discuss.
