Dotdash is looking for writers, editors, historians, public health advocates, and other scholars with diverse backgrounds and experience to join the Dotdash Anti-Bias Review Board.

This board is a cornerstone initiative to ensure our content is inclusive, free from bias, and services people of all races, genders, ages, abilities, and sexual orientations. This is a remote, contract position but all reviewers must be based in the United States. Time commitment is roughly 15 to 25 hours per week depending on availability and pays $30 an hour.

  • You have a degree in a field such as African-American Studies, Social Justice, Public Health, Human Rights, Equity Studies, Community Action, Gender Studies, Women’s Studies, or American History

  • You are a strong advocate, writer, editor, communicator, and educator both for members of those communities and for those seeking to communicate with them
  • You have experience reviewing and remediating content and illustrations across a wide range of topics and media for issues of representation, implicit, and explicit bias
  • You have experience in the health, finance, technology, or lifestyle industries.
  • You understand and respect issues related to conscious language, diversity and inclusivity initiatives, and content integrity

This representative, expert board will provide comprehensive, sensitive, aware recommendations to make our content more accessible and useful for people affected by systemic problems such as racism, classism, and socio-economic issues.


About Your Contributions:

  • Assess both the substance of our content and the way it is communicated for explicit and implicit bias
  • Review and suggest changes for content and images to ensure inclusivity and sensitivity
  • Flag areas of content that can be improved to provide further context, address overlooked questions, and include details critical for BIPOC and other underserved groups
