Our diverse backgrounds, experiences, perspectives and thought processes make AOL unique



AOL is committed to making diversity and inclusion a sustainable reality at all levels of the company. What AOL means by diversity and inclusion goes beyond a traditional view of race, gender, sexual orientation, ability and age. It includes all the different aspects of our workforce's backgrounds, experiences, perspectives and thought processes that can drive innovation, creativity and competitive advantage.

AOL's commitment to diversity and inclusion has clear business benefits:

  • As a global Web services company, AOL's products and services must appeal to the widest range of interests, passions and needs. To do this requires having a diverse and inclusive workforce whose different points of view can help the company understand how to make those products and services relevant to our consumers.
  • AOL seeks to attract the most talented workers, wherever they can be found. Increasingly, top talent demand that companies show their commitment to diversity and inclusion by being great places to work, and places where they can be the best they can be. AOL strives to be one of those places.
  • Creating an energetic, dynamic and creative workplace where good ideas flourish means leveraging the vitality that comes when we fully engage people from different races, backgrounds, ages, orientations and abilities

The company expects employees, managers and executives to live up to its standards of diversity and inclusion in their interactions with others, in their hiring and contracting decisions, and in their business plans. Through training and accountability programs, employee involvement, communications, and other tools, AOL is embedding this commitment to diversity and inclusion into the fabric of the company.


Our Employees

Our employees play a very important part in creating an inclusive culture. As such, we encourage the formation of formal and informal network groups by employees who share similar backgrounds or interest in issues. The groups can be loosely formed as Employee Interest Groups (EIGs) or more formally chartered networks called Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). Both types of groups provide opportunities for networking, training, and professional and personal enrichment for its members. By being a reflection of AOL audiences the ERGs provide scale and support to our various lines of business. But most importantly, they support AOL's goals to ensure diversity and inclusion are embedded into the company's business strategy and that AOL has the talent that is integral to achieving its key business objectives.
