No matter what you bring to the potluck, there’s a seat at the table for you.

Instacart welcomes you just as you are—we celebrate your unique paths and experiences that have brought you to our table.

First things first, diversity, equity and belonging isn’t something we view as “checking the box.” We know that for Instacart to be a successful, long-lasting company, we have to approach it the same way we do any business goal: intentionally and with the resources it requires.

This is a journey for us—we have work to do and we are not shying away from the conversations and actions that will get us there.

“At Instacart, diversity, equity and belonging goes beyond ‘the right thing to do’, it’s core to our company’s success. Our team must reflect our customers, shoppers and the communities we live and work in. We have ambitious plans for the future, and diversity of expertise and lived experiences is essential to innovation, creativity and business growth.”

Our Approach

For us, Diversity, Equity and Belonging encompasses everything from increasing representation, focusing on inclusion, career development and opportunities, to social impact initiatives uplifting our communities, and ensuring we’re designing products that are accessible to everyone. We prioritize a race, ethnicity and gender equity-focused approach to achieve equality in all of our systems and processes.

Workforce Equity

Drive equitable outcomes for employees throughout their career at Instacart.

Workplace Belonging

Optimize for inclusion and belonging. No one should have to code switch at work.

Responsible Citizenship

Evolve what we are known for outside our four walls. From our corporate reputation to our commitment to fighting hunger—because food insecurity is a social justice issue.

Product Inclusion

Design accessible products for everyone, especially our most marginalized users, while uplifting brands from historically underrepresented entrepreneurs.

We are embracing being comfortable in the uncomfortable, so we can grow together.

These are the guidelines for how we interact, helping to shape an environment that creates space for growth where we don’t shy away from making mistakes or having uncomfortable conversations:

Authenticity

Be you. Show up as you are and embrace vulnerability.

Intersectionality

Aim to understand. Learning and sharing lived experiences is critical to ensure all historically marginalized voices are seen and heard.

Intentionality

Be deliberate. Create space for voices who may have been historically overlooked.

Our Communities

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) serve as a catalyst to drive connection and create empowering spaces for the many communities at Instacart. Our ERGs help create a more inclusive culture and business, and amplify the voices of employees with shared identities and experiences across Instacart.
