Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), as reflected in Moshi content, means that children see themselves represented in the content, in places where they spend most of their time, and in ways that are inclusive of their cultures and backgrounds. Our Moshi content is based in a world full of whimsical and imaginary characters and no two are alike. Their strengths and challenges are visible, acknowledged, and accepted through good storytelling.

Moshi Stories address anxiety, loss, anger, joy, sadness, and many more topics. These are all prevalent and developmentally appropriate in children through 10 years of age. Moshi content also serves an important role in the neurodiversity space. We know that all children learn differently. Moshi’s content is diverse enough to accommodate areas such as sensory processing, audio processing, social skill development, and emotional regulation.

Moshi content is served in three different ways, making equitable access a priority. Moshi hosts a YouTube channel with free content added regularly. There is a free version of the Moshi app with over 40 pieces of content. And, there is a monthly and yearly subscription to the Moshi app with a collection of more than 400 pieces of content.

In addition to this, Moshi is free to all educators, giving students access to strategies for emotional well-being in school, where they spend most of their days. Our long-term goal is to create a model where students have access to Moshi on their 1:1 school device. This would enable them to bring Moshi into the home so that they can practice social-emotional skills with their families. This goal also reinforces a holistic approach to building emotional well-being and meeting kids where they are, in school and in-home.
