Our Commitment to Inclusion & Diversity

Cengage Group has a critical role to play in providing quality, inclusive learning materials that empower progress and combat ignorance. As one of the largest education companies in the world, and a global employer, we are taking action to advance inclusion and diversity efforts in our workplaces, communities and the education experiences we provide to learners and educators. We do this because it’s the right thing to do: for our customers, our employees and our business.

We recognize the immense responsibility we have to develop quality learning products and services that are inclusive of all identities, experiences and other forms of difference.

Educators and Students

We do more than simply acknowledge diversity—we actively strive for inclusivity in content through the solicitation, promotion, recruitment, valuation and incorporation of different views and experiences. Our efforts center on:

Recognizing and addressing implicit bias in our products

Being intentional in our learning design and content creation

Ensuring our content reflects diverse sources of scholarship, research and authorship


At Cengage Group, transparency and collaboration are core values. Creating an inclusive environment for our 4,500 employees across 44 countries is necessary to provide diverse perspectives in our products and foster inclusive learning experiences. We also recognize the importance of trust and respect amongst employees and ensuring that individuals at all levels of the organization feel comfortable being their authentic selves at work, including voicing their ideas and opinions.


We strive to achieve inclusivity at Cengage Group through programs and initiatives that create opportunity for learning, listening and involvement. These include unconscious bias training, an annual engagement survey, weekly townhalls with the CEO, peer recognition programs and employee resource groups (ERGs). Our ERGs are employee created and employee-led internal communities, providing personal connections and affiliation to promote diversity, openness, understanding, acceptance and inclusiveness.
