Who We Are

PEOPLE delivers the most trustworthy celebrity news and captivating human interest stories, connecting you to the pulse of American culture. Since our first issue hit stands in 1974, we have been striving to tell compelling stories about the people behind the issues, as opposed to just the issues themselves. We are your everyday escape, taking you inside the lives of intriguing stars, newsmakers, up-and-comers and ordinary people doing extraordinary things. We serve and delight you by providing ideas about beauty, food and style through the lens of the people influencing the trends. And we are a force for good by telling stories of hope, optimism and kindness that drive conversation and inspire action.

Diversity and Inclusion

PEOPLE is committed to taking actionable and measurable steps to combat racism, sexism and other biases in the media. In the list of action items below, our definition of "diverse" refers to diversity of race, culture, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, body type and ability. 

We will enlist the help of the Dotdash Meredith Anti-Bias Review Board to identify key areas where we can improve, as well as successful efforts we can expand on. 

We will expand our list of contributors and content to give a platform to reflect more diverse voices. We will also continually push to use diverse contributors and constantly assess diversity during our recruiting and hiring processes. We will commit to greater representation in our visual assets, working to ensure a broad array of people are represented on social media, our homepage, within print and digital articles, and on our TV programming.

And we will ask readers to hold us accountable. True progress comes with accountability, and we hope readers will partner with us on our mission to tell these stories well and accurately. Please feel free to send questions, comments or suggestions to
