Stories transform people’s hearts and minds. Audible is dedicated to ensuring diverse voices are heard and experienced around the globe. This commitment is reflected in our People Principles: “We respect and celebrate the glories of the human spectrum. We embrace and work to protect inherent civil rights based on people’s gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, color, ethnicity, religious beliefs, birthplace, socioeconomic station, disabilities, and age.”
Hear My Story, one of our international initiatives, grew out of these ideals. It embraces inclusivity and elevates titles from a wide range of creators who explore what it means to belong. Our editorial collections cover topics from Latinx and transgender experiences to neurodiversity, mental health and body positivity.
This includes our Australian storefront, which features a collection of its top audiobooks by First Nations authors and has added a permanent Acknowledgment of Country to emphasize our commitment to reconciliation. Also Audible UK’s TwentyIn2020 series, which includes twenty standalone works by Black British writers during the year 2020, is part of its ongoing Black History Month collection, and Audible UK has raised up anti-racism titles and LGBTQIA+ stories as well.
