Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Over the past two years, we have embarked on a long-term DEI strategy to inspire empathy, redesign systems, and drive accountability through our people, products, partners, and our wider tech ecosystem.
We’ve learned that, even with ambitious goals, making meaningful progress in our workforce representation data takes time. That said, we have been able to drive change more quickly in our company by treating DEI as a business imperative across all of our operations – from how we build our products, to who we partner with, to how we spend our money. 
While we have made strides in redesigning our systems, we still have more work to do to give our team members the tools and resources they need to truly take ownership of DEI.

"We know DEI is a marathon without a finish line. To drive systemic change we need tools, inspiration, expertise, and incentives to stay in the race."

Supporting Our Team

Our values at Snap center around being kind, smart, and creative, and we put those values into action through how we support our team. We have committed to a minimum living wage for all employees globally. In parallel, several organizations at Snap work to ensure that our team members have the support they need to grow. Our Council program helps Snap build and sustain a community steeped in connection and collaboration, our talent development programs unlock potential by helping team members advance and learn, and our well-being programs help team members to be their best selves at work. Snap succeeds when our people succeed.
In 2021, we continued to unveil new initiatives to engage and uplift Snap employees worldwide, including expanding mental health services, increasing management training, and accelerating our DEI learning programming.
