Diversity & Inclusion

When asked what makes Ketchum special, we repeatedly hear “hands down, our people.” We have curated a culture that exemplifies the best in each of us, allowing employees to bring their whole self to work, which in turn brings our best work to our clients.

We strive to be as ethnically and culturally diverse as the communities we are in and the consumer our clients want to reach. We celebrate that our employees have their own experiences and backgrounds. We’ve built community-focused Diversity & Inclusion Councils to amplify our values and ensure all feel welcomed, valued, respected and heard.

This year we also rolled out an important, strategic learning initiative (through Ketchum University) related to unconscious bias called Mind Your Bias. The goal of this program is to create more understanding and awareness around our biases, so that we can cultivate a more creative, inclusive workplace together.

Ketchum’s Mind Your Bias program is aligned with our overall Diversity & Inclusion strategy, and will help us be even more thoughtful about how we show up every day at work and in our lives outside of work. We are a talented and passionate group who does phenomenal work for top rated clients. We also have a great time doing it. Don’t take our word for it – check us out!
