Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

All together now

Fostering diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in the workplace needs to be intentional. At Segment, we are making investments to ensure our workplace culture is welcoming and inclusive to folks with a diverse set of identities, experiences and backgrounds.

We are not just a company

When companies discuss diversity and inclusion, it can sound like just another corporate play. Segment understands that DEI is more than just an acronym, it’s a part of our core values inside and outside the office.

Our approach to diversity illustration

Our approach to diversity, equity and inclusion is simple

  • Drive systemic change that will enable us to build a more diverse community
  • Empower employees to be inclusive leaders and positive changemakers
  • To hold us accountable to this work, we have assembled an executive sponsored DEI Task Force. This team includes employee representatives from Segment's global workforce, owns our DEI strategy and ensures we are making data-driven progress and learning along the way.

Our goals

In early 2020, we looked at our representation numbers and our employee engagement survey data. From this, we established two company-wide objectives for this fiscal year.

>38%

Identify as Female

>16%

Underrepresented Minorities

* URM is defined as African American/Black, Hispanic/Latinx+, Native American and Two or more races. * We have limited our demographic reporting to U.S.-based employees in order to adhere to local laws in the other countries in which we operate.”

Commitment to Racial Equity

In doing this work, it’s important that we also understand the prevalent racial injustices faced by people of color. We are committing to being a more racially just company and to enabling positive action from the individual to the company level.

Here are the steps we are taking

  • We made Juneteenth a company holiday
  • We organized safe spaces for teammates to discuss anti-racism
  • We launched an inclusive leadership training for managers
  • We made donations to racial justice organizations like the NAACP Legal Defense Fund
  • We are supporting legislation that requires more diverse representation in a company’s Board of Directors in California
  • We are reimagining our hiring and interview processes to make them more inclusive
