World View is a media company and an experiment.

We are a for profit company. Still, we strive to create value for others, our environment, and our society as a whole. We will never allow an opinion or perspective to be purchased. We are open to criticism, critique, and will hold ourselves accountable for our impact.

We believe that every voice deserves to help construct its communities’ narratives. We will never censor a perspective put forward in good faith. Neither will we tolerate oppressive behavior or hate speech. This includes racism, sexism, classism, transphobia, homophobia, fatphobia, ableism, ageism, toxic masculinity, misogyny, antisemitism, Islamophobia, ethnocentrism, or imperialism.

We believe that when used correctly, technology holds the power to transform our relationships, our ability to communicate, and our world. We will promote innovation, sustainability, and justice in our approach to technology. We will reinvent current strategies—the collection of user data, individual user profiles, toxic comment sections, and bias-reinforcing algorithms—to rethink the potential of our on and offline spaces.

We believe that our internal organization must be the primary reflection of our values. We will invest in our own development, take care of each other, and create space for open and frank conversations.

We choose to celebrate, appreciate, and share all that we have.
We choose to rethink the power structures that regulate our access to knowledge.
We choose to honor feedback, listening, and learning from one another.
