As part of our efforts to create a workplace that engages people of all backgrounds while fostering an environment of diversity, equity, and inclusion, our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) play a vital role in building and driving the culture that our people experience.
Today, we’re thrilled to announce the formation of the Able@ DoorDash ERG, joining AAPI (Asian, Asian American, Pacific Islander), Black, Indigenous, Parents, Pride, Unidos, Veterans, and Women as our ninth official Employee Resource Group.
With the newly-formed Able@ Employee Resource Group, we’re creating a globally inclusive support network that celebrates physical and neurological diversity. This dedicated space will open opportunities for judgment-free questions, knowledge sharing, and the development of resources that support and advocate our physically and neurologically different employees.
Together, our Able@ ERG will collaborate to keep inclusivity of all abilities top of mind in DoorDash’s workplaces and products, challenging common stigmas related to differences in physical ability, appearance, size, personality, cognition, intellect, executive function, and more.
Historically, DoorDash has been proud to support this community through inclusive hiring practices, manager training, accommodations requests, and access to food. Systemic change takes thought, effort, and dedication. At DoorDash, we believe in our people and will continually look for ways that we can empower and support them.
