Cultivating a culture of inclusion at Lyft

“Inclusion and Diversity are at the core of Lyft’s principles. To build the world's best transportation, our internal workforce should reflect the people we’re building it for. We continue to make progress, and as an industry leader, it is my responsibility to continue raising the bar for Lyft so we can better serve our riders, drivers, and the communities we operate in.”

-Logan Green, CEO

"As the Head of Inclusion and Diversity at Lyft, I want to ensure that our workplace is equitable and a safe space for everyone, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or ability. A place where each person who comes to work knows that they can reach their full potential by showing up as their best, authentic selves. Because when that happens, the positive impact we can deliver for our riders, drivers, partners, and cities is immeasurable."

-Monica Poindexter, Head of Inclusion & Diversity

Our holistic approach

We will continue raising the bar for Inclusion and Diversity with emphasis on four strategic pillars: Workplace, Workforce, Marketplace, and Accountability. We aim to be the best and most trusted transportation network for riders, drivers, and the communities we serve.

Cultivating an inclusive culture is central to our workplace ethos. That means establishing and putting into practice thoughtful policies designed to ensure an equitable environment for all. It also means dedicating resources towards impact-driven Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to encourage everyone to live out Lyft’s core values: be yourself, uplift others, and make it happen. From our Gender Identity & Affirmation Policy to our community celebration of Black History Month, some of Lyft’s most important ideas have emerged from our ERGs.

Inclusion & Diversity Strategies > Workforce


Inclusion and diversity are pivotal elements in our workforce narrative. We continue to drive meaningful change by building, assessing, and evolving our goals for hiring and retention. We engage early and often with leadership to track equitable hiring, development, and advancement across our diverse talent pool.

Inclusion & Diversity Strategies > Marketplace


It’s not enough to just look inward. We’re taking action to become a trusted brand in every interaction with drivers, riders, our own talent, and the communities we serve. We’re taking further action toward our goal of making Lyft the safest form of transportation for everyone.. And we’re partnering with forward-looking organizations and conferences to achieve that goal with the best, most diverse talent.

We’ve baked accountability metrics into our process, holding ourselves to our promise to deliver on our development commitments and hiring goals. This extends upwards and outwards in collaboration with Executives and People Managers to execute on I&D action plans. We regularly communicate status, measure impact, and thoughtfully iterate with tangible results in mind.
