Our Commitment to DEI

We believe that a commitment to DEI helps all brands future-proof their businesses. By 2040, America will be a majority-minority country. When people join a company, they bring their culture, values, and worldviews to improve the work or lives of their customers. Our diverse workforce will understand the needs of a diverse population and speak to customers in terms that resonate with them. Therefore, a diverse workforce is an intelligent strategy for success today and future-proof brands.

With a diverse Board and workforce, Colossus SSP has the required expertise to assist brands and publishers in effectively engaging with multicultural and micro-niche audiences, helping them to ensure that campaigns are fair, equitable, and free from discrimination.
