Before joining the Daily Wire and Ralston, Peterson served as a  psychology professor at the University of Toronto (U of T). In protest, he resigned his tenure position at the university in January, citing that U of T does not favor ideological diversity.

In his resignation letter, Peterson wrote that Toronto’s “Diversity, Inclusivity, and Equity mandates” or “D-I-E” are ruining the university’s commitment to promoting an environment that promotes discussion, learning, and diversity.

His move to Daily Wire was motivated by his and the company's “shared values,” Peterson said to the outlet. “Partnering with a company that shares my own values for excellence and entrepreneurial vision is the natural next step for me. And, it’s time for a new adventure.”
