What defines us.
Our values are the foundation of our culture. But they're not just words. It's how we apply them that defines who we are.
A better world is possible, and we're dedicated to working towards it.
We want Outcast to be a place where everyone is valued, encouraged, and supported. Mosaic, our dedicated diversity, equity, and inclusion team, brings together passionate employees from all areas and levels of Outcast to chart our course of continual progress.
It’s a key piece of our leadership and culture, and steers every part of our growth.
Mosaic is the driving force behind our DEI efforts, leading trainings, developing resources, and facilitating company-wide forums on how we can better support each other and our communities.
Our goal: to provide a workplace in which everyone has an opportunity to grow and lead. As integrated marketing professionals, we have a responsibility to find and amplify BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and other marginalized voices, and to uplift brands challenging injustice and fighting for a better tomorrow.
Our commitments guide us toward a deeper understanding of the challenges facing a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive world, and remind us to be a company that reflects the kind of reality we want to live in. Over the past year, our pillars — Talent, Training, and Advocacy — guided our actions and progress. While we’re excited about the opportunity to continue learning, growing, and empowering our community, we recognize that this work doesn’t have an endpoint. It constantly evolves, and we’re motivated to continue identifying ways to ensure everyone at Outcast is seen, heard, and valued.
Volunteers don't get paid; they give their time freely in order to advance a cause they believe in. Essentially, that’s how it's always worked. But at Outcast, we’re guided by the idea that each of us can be a part of the big things that lead to big changes in the world. Volunteering for meaningful causes is one way to do that.
We call it OC20. Every year, the agency gives every Outcast 20 working hours they can dedicate towards volunteering for any of the passions or nonprofits they choose — fully paid. In 2021, several Outcasts partnered with national innovation and research center Impact Justice on media outreach and social content to promote the first-ever national examination of food in prisons. This report shows how inadequate prison food damages incarcerated people and our entire society, and provides recommendations for a positive path forward.
With hundreds of hours logged at organizations like Impact Justice — including Rise Against Hunger, Tipping Point, The Humane Society, and Reclaim Our Vote — we believe Outcasts are making a real impact.
