In 2020, we created and shared a concrete plan to make our team and our site more inclusive and to elevate a diversity of voices. Our goal is to evolve into a site that truly helps 每一个人 打造他们最好的家. 

While we are committed to the initiatives outlined below, we acknowledge that change requires time and patience, and that we might make mistakes along the way. To hold ourselves accountable, we will share our progress and updates regularly. If you have any questions about our plan, suggestions for how we can improve it, or referrals for contributors to hire or creators to feature, 请电子邮件: contact@hunandby.com. We’re looking forward to hearing from you.

  1. 分散澳门新莆京app官网的员工. 截至2021年4月, 25% of 的澳门新莆京app官网 editorial staff identifies as BIPOC (Black, 土著, 人的颜色). We have ensured that BIPOC candidates are considered for each open role we’ve posted since July, 2020. We interview at least one BIPOC candidate for every open role.
  2. Diversify contributor network. 在澳门新莆京app官网, the majority of our content is written by contributing writers who are experts in the topic areas that they cover, and photographed by a network of in-house and freelance photographers. 澳门新莆京app官网的母公司, 澳门新莆京app下载, is working on formally auditing the diversity of our contributors, and our goal continues to be ensuring at least 25% of regular Spruce contributors identify as members of the BIPOC community. We consistently look to BIPOC-centric sites to source our photographers. When contracting with vendors for original photography and video shoots, we will continue to make a concerted effort to work with BIPOC owned businesses. 
  3. Normalize highlighting BIPOC creators. By updating our existing, highly trafficked articles to be more inclusive of BIPOC voices, we can impact content that reaches over 20 million people each month. We are currently 审查ing our most popular interior design galleries, 点式“最好的”, and influencer roundups and updating them to highlight the work of BIPOC creators, which will represent at least 20% of each article. 
  4. Revisit our most popular articles with a critical lens. In 2020, we 审查ed our most highly trafficked articles and identified at least 450 articles that need to be updated for inclusivity. 澳门新莆京app下载’s official Anti-Bias Review Board is currently in the process of 审查ing our most popular and widely read articles with a view for bias (intentional and unintentional). We have kicked off several remediation projects following this 审查, including one to remove all mention of “Master Bedroom” and another to remediate problematic plant names. We work closely with the 审查 board to inform other updates and our new stories as well.
  5. 分散投资审查委员会. Part of our editorial process is to have certain articles—those that make medical claims or may affect the health, safety or finances of our readers—审查ed by industry professionals. (了解更多有关澳门新莆京app官网的 三个 审查 董事会). We pledge to continue sourcing our new 审查 board members from BIPOC-centric sites.
  6. We will partner with an organization that uplifts marginalized voices in the design world. While many of our articles offer practical advice, we also provide inspiration to millions of people looking to spruce up their homes with artwork, 对象, 家具, 等. We pledge to officially partner with an organization dedicated to marginalized members of the design community, and work with them to uplift their members’ voices across our channels. We are striving to have this partnership active by Q3 of 2021.
  7. Normalize highlighting BIPOC voices across social media. We are committed to diversifying the network of creators we work with on social media, particularly on Instagram, the platform on which we’re most active. Our original goal stated that we’d strive to feature a minimum of 25% of creators who identify as BIPOC, with the intent of increasing BIPOC representation over time. 截至4月, 2021, at least 33% of content posted to 的澳门新莆京app官网's Instagram account reflects BIPOC voices.

Thank you to our readers for inspiring us to do more, and to do better.
