Last week, we released the first episode of our first podcast, Medium Playback. On each episode of the show, we invite a writer we love to the studio to perform a recent story they wrote for Medium (episode one features beloved author Roxane Gay) and then chat with us about it.
In case you didn’t know, diversity in the workplace is a good idea. It builds better, stronger teams by expanding the collective knowledge of the company, improves profitability, and can boost morale.
Diversity is especially important to us at Medium. Our audience is everyone in the world. If we have a homogenous group making the decisions on how to build our product, we’re going to have a pretty narrow perspective and a one-sided experience.
