DEI at Lever

Diversity and Inclusion at Lever

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion started with a task force of just ten employees. We didn’t know it then, but this task force would take deep root in our culture — fundamentally shaping our trajectory. Since then, we’ve worked to create an environment where employees can thrive and bring their authentic selves to work without judgment. By working to eliminate bias in the workplace, we allow every employee the freedom to express themselves, to be open with their ideas, and pursue further opportunities for growth as they bring their best self to work every day.

Accountability to diversity, equity and inclusion are key. We provide education throughout an employee’s journey, create intentional recruiting efforts focused on diversity, give a fair and equitable performance and comp reviews, show weekly peer appreciation, or even offer inclusive features within our product. Diversity and Inclusion are continuous, and we at Lever are always on a quest to acknowledge, embrace and continue to learn and foster a safe environment that makes our employees feel welcome and at home.

Customers frequently ask us what they can do to create a diverse and inclusive workplace, so we wrote this Diversity and Inclusion Handbook to compile those insights, along with those from inclusion leaders at 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.
