DoorDash and our AAPI@ ERG celebrate AAPI Heritage Month

No items found.

Throughout May, alongside our Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Employee Resource Group, we’re celebrating AAPI Heritage Month in the United States and Canada. Traditionally a time dedicated for remembrance of the many contributions of the Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander community, we’re kicking off a series of virtual and in-person events aimed to continue building the community of AAPI peers and allies at DoorDash.

We’ll kick off the month with offsite volunteer opportunities, helping with food preparation and distribution to the elderly in New York, and supporting a garden cleanup effort in San Francisco. Throughout the month, our workplace teams will be stocking snack shelves with AAPI owned and founded products in our New York, Tempe, and San Francisco office spaces. We’ll also host a series of in-person social hours in our San Francisco, New York, Seattle, and Sunnyvale offices. 

Our people will participate in an Ask Me Anything session with our AAPI@ executive sponsor, VP of Engineering Liangxiao Zhu in conversation with VP of Product Rajat Shroff. As we close out the month, New York-based Korean dessert shop Rice Blossoms will host a live, virtual cooking class making Korean rice cakes (songpyeon). 

Outside of official AAPI events, our people are encouraged to keep support for the AAPI community going by joining groups such as Asian Americans Advancing Justice, AAPI Women Lead, India Literacy Project, Chinese Progressive Association, and Asian Pacific Environmental Network. 

At DoorDash, we are intentional in our efforts to create a workplace that engages people of all backgrounds, while fostering an environment of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We will continue to prioritize investing in and advancing opportunities for historically underrepresented people through our efforts as a company and by encouraging learning and development, such as Bystander Training and Understanding and Supporting Asian Employees training opportunities.
