Karen Greenfield has been promoted to the newly created post of senior vice president of content, diversity, and inclusion, announced National Geographic Content (Nat Geo).

Previously, Greenfield served as Nat Geo's SVP of Business Operations and Chair of the Diversity and Inclusion Council. In her new role, she is in charge of creating and carrying out various initiatives and programs to produce diverse and inclusive content in addition to fostering a culture of belonging throughout all Nat Geo Content teams. She is also entrusted with collaborating with executives across The Walt Disney Company to guarantee that Nat Geo talent and content are incorporated into Companywide DEI efforts, says Deadline.

She answers directly to Courteney Monroe, who oversees all content for National Geographic. Greenfield’s office is at the Nat Geo headquarters in Washington, D.C.

"I could not be prouder to work for National Geographic, an iconic brand whose aim is to guarantee that all perspectives are included in storytelling, and to work alongside Courteney and her senior team, who believe in this principle," said Greenfield in a written statement.

In addition, the Greenfield-led National Geographic Content announced that it had renewed its Nat Geo Media Scholarship program for students attending historically Black colleges or universities (HBCU).

“The Nat Geo Media Scholarship's approval for a second year is a testament to their devotion," she continued.

"For 134 years, National Geographic has changed the world through the power of storytelling. The inclusion of everyone's voice is a crucial part of that,” said Monroe. "Karen is an extraordinary executive with a track record of managing projects for diversity and inclusion and collaborating with the top content producers in the world. I'm overjoyed that Karen will use her incredible skills and passion to lead us as we push the boundaries of what is possible in our mission to inspire and promote diversity and inclusion in all facets of our work and narrative.”
