DoorDash is committed to growing and empowering inclusive communities within our company, our industry, and our cities. We hold ourselves accountable to diversity, equity, and inclusion not only because it allows us to better understand and serve our stakeholders, but also because it’s the right thing to do.

Today, we are honored to share that the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation has given DoorDash a 100 percent rating on its annual Corporate Equality Index in the company’s inaugural ranking. With this score, DoorDash has earned the designation of being a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality” and in addition, is becoming a National Corporate Partner with the HRC Foundation to further our commitment to advancing a more inclusive workplace and community.

Fostering a company culture of Pride and allyship

In 2018, we formally launched our Pride@DoorDash Employee Resource Group (ERG) as an opportunity for employees who identify as LGBTQ+ and their allies to build community, influence business decisions, and help create a more equitable DoorDash. Pride@ is one of eight ERGs at DoorDash, all of which are supported by executive sponsors on our Management Team.

“Pride@DoorDash brings together the LGBTQ+ community and their allies at DoorDash, helping to build a company where all employees feel seen and respected in order to do incredible work every day on behalf of our customers. The Pride@ ERG is a driving force within the DoorDash community and has helped bring important initiatives to life for our LGBTQ+ employees and communities. At over 800 members today, this group of employees has fostered a culture of inclusivity that will continue to scale and make us better as DoorDash grows.”
– Elizabeth Jarvis-Shean, Pride@DoorDash Executive Sponsor & VP, Communications and Policy

The Pride@ ERG has contributed to significant efforts throughout DoorDash, such as: the company-wide effort to display personal pronouns; hosting events and educational sessions on the experiences of those in the Queer community; working closely with leadership to build more inclusive restrooms in our new and existing offices; and introducing more LGBTQ+-friendly employee benefits, including coverage for egg freezing procedures, adoption & surrogacy fees, hormone therapy, and more.

“The Pride@DoorDash ERG is a place where we have been able to create a space for members to feel comfortable sharing their experiences, as well as people asking for advice on how to be better allies. Watching the community that exists within our group support each other, from sharing movie recommendations to wedding announcements to frustrations of encountering less than welcoming people in our lives makes doing the work of leading an ERG worth it.”  
– Miranda Burbridge and Tara Scuderi, Pride@ ERG Co-Chairs

Raising up Queer voices from the inside out

To fulfill our mission of empowering local economies, we must empower everyone in our communities. That’s why, over the last several years, we’ve taken a stance to publicly support the LGBTQ+ community.

As a company, we officially endorsed the Equality Act and filed an amicus brief before the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold equality in the workplace and condemn discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. We have also partnered with the GLBT Historical Society to educate our customers on the history of some of the LGBTQ+ communities we serve, as well as launching collaborations with LGBTQ+ owned stores, and establishing marketing initiatives to drive visibility for them.
