We’re proud to share that Instacart has received a score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), designating Instacart as one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality. 

The index is the nation’s foremost benchmarking tool measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality. The results of the 2022 CEI showcase how U.S.-based companies are not only promoting LGBTQ+-friendly workplace policies in the U.S., but also helping to advance the cause of LGBTQ+ inclusion in workplaces abroad. 

The CEI rates companies on detailed criteria falling under four central pillars:

  • Non-discrimination policies across business entities
  • Equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families
  • Supporting an inclusive culture
  • Corporate social responsibility 

For us, Diversity, Equity, and Belonging encompasses everything from increasing representation, cultivating belonging, and developing talent, to social impact initiatives that nurture our communities, and product design that enables access to everyone, all while uplifting brands from historically underrepresented owners. At Instacart, we prioritize a race, ethnicity and gender equity-focused approach to achieve parity in our systems and processes.

Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) help to create a more inclusive culture and business, and to amplify the voices of employees with shared identities and experiences across Instacart. Our Rainbow Carrots ERG is dedicated to celebrating diversity in the LGBTQ2IA+ community, driving improvements in the work environment, and providing support and opportunities for queer-identifying Instacart employees and their Allies.

As we look ahead, we’re committed to continuing to invest in meaningful actions and programs to drive connection and create empowering spaces for the many communities at Instacart. 

No matter what you bring to the potluck, there’s a seat at the table for you. Learn more about our communities at Instacart here
