Dorman has worked with Mediaocean for ten years and held senior roles in client services and customer experience. In the brief time since taking the CPO post, she has prioritized diversity, equity, and inclusion (“DE&I”), spearheading several new employee initiatives and promoting Nicole Brown to become Mediaocean’s first-ever Vice President of DE&I.
“I’m both excited and gratified by the opportunity to build on Mediaocean’s extraordinary team and culture,” said Dorman. “In the short time since I started at this position, I’ve already seen an enormously positive reception to our efforts to make our team even more vibrant, supportive, and representative than it already is.”
In addition to promoting Brown, Dorman has implemented a number of companywide measures to promote diversity and inclusion, including recognizing Juneteenth as a global day of reflection and standing up a Diversity Career Circle to promote cultural awareness as a community. Under Dorman’s direction, Mediaocean has also designated major election days as company holidays for all Mediaocean employees and is removing identifying details from resumes to reduce unconscious bias. Additional initiatives include establishing a Mental Health and Wellness Career Circle and a global Workplace Options program that provides counseling sessions among other wellness benefits.
Dorman and her team are also in the process of implementing several more measures, including appointing DE&I leadership teams at Mediaocean offices around the globe, expanding Mediaocean’s recruiting pipeline by leveraging diverse job boards, accelerating Mediaocean’s gender and ethnicity pay gap analysis, standardizing interview feedback, implementing mandatory emotional intelligence training for all team members, and investing in social awareness education programs, like Mediaocean’s most recent Allyship in Action.
“Stephanie and Mediaocean’s leadership team have empowered us to make real, lasting, and positive change in our organization and our communities,” said Brown. “There’s a genuine desire to help our team reach its full potential, and real trust in us to lead the effort to make that happen.”
