Our award-winning journalists have covered Washington and the world since 1877.
The Washington Post is an organization that values and is committed to building a stronger culture of diversity and equity, where current and future Washington Post employees can thrive in an inclusive and respectful environment.
To further advance our commitment to these fundamental values and ensure transparency, we are releasing our first public demographics report and will continue to do so on an annual basis. The data in this report is current as of June 30, 2020. Future publication of this report will occur annually.
This report provides both snapshots and trended data views of the gender and racial composition of our workforce over a five-year period. In addition to organization-wide data, breakouts for News & Editorial and Business are included.
