We’re proud to share that Instacart has earned a 100 percent ranking on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), certifying Instacart as a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.”

The HRC’s CEI is the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality. The results of the 2021 CEI showcase how U.S.-based companies are not only promoting LGBTQ-friendly workplace policies in the U.S., but also helping 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

At Instacart, we believe in developing a more diverse workforce and fostering an inclusive culture where people can bring their true, authentic selves to work. We’re proud to have five active employee resource groups (ERGs) that contribute to our diversity and inclusion commitments. Rainbow Carrots, our LGBTQIA+ ERG, is dedicated to celebrating diversity in the LGBTQ+ community, driving improvements in the work environment, and providing support and opportunities for queer Instacart employees.

In 2021, we’re committed to making Instacart an even more supportive and inclusive place. We’re dedicated to further partnering with our ERGs and investing in meaningful actions that create a sense of belonging and community at Instacart.
