LinkedIn wants employees from all backgrounds to be successful

 February 23, 2022

LinkedIn's vision to create economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce, connects everyone at the company. As the company realizes diversity, inclusion, and belonging for its employees, members, and customers, it gets closer to achieving that vision.

Creating a community of diverse professionals in tech

LinkedIn's strategy is to diversify the company and ensure that employees from all backgrounds are successful, with a focus on groups that are underrepresented today.

By doing so, LinkedIn will move toward its vision of creating a thriving community of diverse professionals in tech. 

LinkedIn works with over 40 partners to enhance its diversity, inclusion & belonging strategy at the company and to work towards its vision to create a thriving community of diverse professionals in tech. 

Belonging at LinkedIn

Belonging unlocks an employee’s full potential. It's central to how LinkedIn approaches its talent strategy. LinkedIn wants its people to feel welcome and valued. They should feel free to express themselves – and not only respected for it, but celebrated. When LinkedIn engages with employees and listen to their unique perspectives, the company benefits. 

Creating community for underrepresented groups 

Employee resource groups (ERGs) are a vital part of the LinkedIn culture. They create community for underrepresented groups, foster belonging, and help connect everyone at LinkedIn.

The ten ERGs connect over 5,000 LinkedIn teammates across the globe. They build and strengthen communities of ERG members and allies, and develop the next generation of LinkedIn leaders.

These are: 

  • Black Inclusion Group 
  • EnableIn
  • Embrace
  • Families at LinkedIn
  • Hispanics of LinkedIn Alliance (HOLA)
  • LinkedIn Asian Alliance
  • Out@ln
  • Veterans at LinkedIn
  • Wisdom at LinkedIn
  • Women at LinkedIn
