Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

Cultivating a culture of inclusion at Lyft

It is Lyft's commitment to provide a safe, equitable, and accessible work environment for everyone, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or ability. We strive to create a work environment where each employee is able to show up as their true, authentic self to achieve their full potential. As a result, we can achieve an immeasurable positive impact on riders, drivers, partners, and cities.

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 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.


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.
