Diversity, inclusion and belonging
Our vision, to create economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce, connects everyone at LinkedIn. As we realize diversity, inclusion, and belonging for our employees, members, and customers, we get closer to achieving that vision.
Our commitment and vision
Our strategy is to diversify LinkedIn and ensure that employees from all backgrounds are successful, with a focus on groups that are underrepresented today. By doing so, we will move toward our vision of creating a thriving community of diverse professionals in tech. Learn more about our journey to transform ourselves and the world in our sixth annual workforce diversity report.
Belonging at LinkedIn
Belonging unlocks an employee’s full potential. It's
central to how we approach our talent strategy. We want our people to feel welcome and valued. They should feel free to express themselves – and not only respected for it, but celebrated. When we engage employees and listen to their unique perspectives, we benefit.
Employee resource groups (ERGs) are a vital part of our culture. They create community for underrepresented groups, foster belonging, and help connect everyone at LinkedIn.
"When I attended my onboarding at LinkedIn, to my surprise, there was another new hire who had a disability. I'm blind myself, and in my years of working, this was the first time this has happened. It certainly sent a signal to me that LinkedIn was and would be a welcoming place for everyone, including folks with disabilities like me, to work."

"A major decision I made when starting my job was deciding whether or not to use the word "dope." As a black man navigating the corporate landscape, I was taught not to bring any more attention to myself. But at LinkedIn my colleagues stress the notion of bringing your whole self to work. And that's pretty dope."

“The more I learn about Diversity, inclusion and belonging, the more I realize I don’t know, and will never know, about every individual’s experience. And I’ve realised that’s the point, that’s exactly the DIBs journey we are all on - being open to learning, being open to making mistakes, and through doing these things, building a more inclusive world”

"When my son was born and diagnosed with Down Syndrome, it was like an earthquake in my life. Coming back to work only reminded of the amazing environment I'm in; everyone in the office was so supportive and allowed me time to process my emotions. I could not be more thankful for having such great colleagues that make the both of us feel like we belong."
