Belonging is at our core

There’s no belonging without diversity and inclusion. To create a world where people can Belong Anywhere we must take real steps to build a workplace where everyone feels welcome and all voices are heard.

Belonging is the thread that weaves through every touchpoint at Airbnb. Diversity is the needle that guides this thread. At Airbnb, we value and promote the diversity of our workforce, our guests, our hosts, our marketplace platform, and the world. Simply put, diversity belongs.

It’s up to us to take action and create a better workplace
Working toward a more equitable world is an active and ongoing process, not a static goal. As our community of employees, resource groups, and global partners helps us identify new ways to grow, we’re making commitments to build a more diverse and welcoming Airbnb.

Supporting lasting change is a collaborative process built on partnerships
To live our mission, we collaborate with external organisations that support shared values and align their work within the communities they serve. Here are a few of our partnerships that are promoting open discussion, and elevating diverse voices at global and local levels.
Join us in shaping Airbnb’s future
We are committed to building a more diverse and inclusive workplace by listening to our internal community. Our goals, initiatives, and commitments to action are shaped and strengthened by these employee voices. We are working hard, but we know there is more work to be done. Join us, and help Airbnb build a better, more equitable future where all voices are heard and everyone can truly feel they belong.
