This November, we’re celebrating Native American Heritage Month as part of our overarching efforts to create a workplace that engages people of all backgrounds, while fostering an environment of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

In partnership with our Indigenous@ Employee Resource Group, we’re celebrating and acknowledging the rich, resilient, and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories of Indigenous members of our company and communities.

To kick off a month of celebrating Indigenous people and their accomplishments, we have a series of engaging in-person and virtual events, starting with a kick-off dinner near our Tempe corporate hub. 

On Tuesday, we’ll offer professional headshots for Indigenous@ members followed by a weeklong event dubbed Rock Your Mocs, encouraging our members to rock moccasins, or any traditional regalia, to work, the store, pow wows, or anywhere. 

From there, we’ll host a breathwork meditation session with Deoné Newell, learn about diabetes prevention with Geriah Paohway of Native Health Phoenix, and wrap up the month with storytelling from an Indigenous Micronesian Master Navigator of the Pacific Ocean, Pwo Larry Raigetal.

We will continue to prioritize investing in and advancing opportunities for historically underrepresented people. Our success as a company is firmly rooted in our inclusive culture and in advancing diversity throughout DoorDash to ensure we reflect the global audiences we serve, with learning and development opportunities available to corporate team members in support of allyship and belonging. 

Our efforts to create a workplace where everyone feels welcomed, supported, and valued is one of the reasons we were recently recognized as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces 2023 by Newsweek.
