Largest Media Agency in North America Focuses on Diversity Hiring Efforts


(NEW YORK) - Mogul, Inc., a disruptor in the HR Tech and executive recruiting industry, today announced that it has signed a deal with Horizon Media, the largest media agency in North America, according to AdAge Data Center 2021.  

 According to the deal, Horizon Media will use Mogul’s innovative Talent Acquisition Platform to source and hire top, diverse talent. Mogul’s platform has become the recruiting industry’s preferred software for reaching diverse talent, as it has unique, patent-pending software filters that allow recruiters to search for talent by gender, ethnicity, disability status, and veteran status, without limiting search results. No other talent acquisition platform offers this combination of abilities right now. 

Joining Mogul’s platform is yet another step in Horizon Media’s growing investment in DEI on the heels of its recent creation of an innovative enterprise Marketing + DEI model and role, naming Latraviette D. Smith-Wilson to the newly constituted role of Chief Marketing and Equity Officer. This transformative approach embeds DEI into the core of Horizon’s business, ensuring maximum impact across their culture, client work, and growth strategy. Partnering with Mogul continues to deepen and advance Horizon’s DEI goals by helping to ensure the agency is reaching the best and brightest talent available.

We are cultivating an ‘Agency of Belonging’ where our diverse community of employees can be nurtured, celebrated, and empowered to be their best, authentic selves,” said Eileen Benwitt, EVP & Chief Talent Officer, Horizon Media, “Mogul’s software impressed our recruiting teams because of its ease of use and ability to source diverse candidates.  We look forward to further accelerating our internal efforts to bring on top, high-potential talent through this partnership.” 

Mogul offers a talent acquisition platform, diversity recruiting services, inclusive networking events, educational events, online social communities, and a job board.
