Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Axions across the organization rally around a shared mission to build a diverse organization in which all feel welcomed, valued, and respected so that both individuals and the company can thrive. We call this Our DEI Commitment.

Measure what matters

1 big thing: Twice per year, we run a custom-designed survey to capture our demographics, assess inclusion and belonging, and ultimately power our D&I efforts with data.

Why it matters: These surveys help our leaders thoughtfully assess improvements and target areas of opportunity. Just four years in, we are proud to make aspects of these surveys public as Axios holds itself accountable and pushes the tech and media industries forward.

The details: A snapshot of our survey results and progress are below.

Employee Resource Groups

An Employee Resource Group (ERG) is a company-sponsored group organized to establish a community of people who identify with a particular identity. An ERG benefits both the company and the individual by providing those individuals with a safe space to build community around identity and to advance the mission and values of the company.
