Internal Representation & Support
To evaluate this pillar, we take into consideration a range of factors, including but not limited to:
- Employee representation
- Diversity, equity, & inclusion (DEI)
We weigh a company’s degree of public commitment primarily on their monetary contributions to DEI matters or organizations fighting racial injustice.
Forms of monetary support we look for:

In July 2020, FX and Hulu launched "The New York Times Presents", a 10-episode series investigating Breonna Taylor's death. In addition, their adaptation of Little Fires Everywhere chose to focus heavily on race where Celeste Ng's novel did not. Their production team for this series also featured strong female leadership.
Zoë Kravitz called out Hulu's lack of diversity after her highly rated show High Fidelity was cancelled. Hulu-exclusive show "Woke" received criticisms as well, having been accused of lacking a fresh exploration of the Black experience.
We scour the company’s website and official social media channels to determine what message they are sending around racial injustice, how they are communicating it, and whether their communications are perceived as genuine or performative.
Public statement: We verify that companies have made a formal statement regarding racial injustice.
Social media: We consider how a company uses their platform(s) beyond performative allyship.
Representation: For companies that have the opportunity to showcase diversity in their feed, we consider whether they have adequate Black representation and BIPOC representation across their models.
