Resources for cultivating diversity and inclusion in the workplace 

The Diversity and Inclusion Handbook

Customers frequently ask us what they can do to create a diverse and inclusive workplace, so we started by launching the blog series below to share what we’ve learned in our journey. Then, we wrote this Diversity and Inclusion Handbook to compile those insights, along with those from inclusion leaders at Lyft, Yelp, Affirm, and Shopify. In it, you’ll find tactical advice, beneficial resources, and examples of what you can do today to make real progress in diversity and inclusion.

Why diversity and inclusion is so important to us

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion started with a taskforce at just 10 employees. We didn't know it then, but this taskforce would take deep root in our culture – fundamentally shaping our trajectory. Since then, we've worked to create an environment where Leveroos can thrive and bring their authentic selves to work without judgement. We've learned that giving Leveroos the freedom to express themselves, to be open with their ideas, and to use opportunities for growth as their north star frees them to put their best work forward.

“When employees from all walks of life can look around and see people like themselves already succeeding at all levels in your company, it makes a powerful impact on their own success.”

– Sarah Nahm, Co-Founder and CEO

Whether it’s through diversity and inclusion education during new employee ramp class, regular team workshops, weekly peer appreciation, or everyday actions, we strive to create a workplace where everyone feels like a welcome and essential part of the team. We're not perfect, we're still learning and we're always open to new and different ways to think about inclusion.
