Our ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ program sits as a top priority for PayPal. Its core values are seen in many measures we undertake to continue building a better and more diverse workplace. Three examples include: our Women’s Initiative Network, which aims to support women in building lasting, successful careers at PayPal; our lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) network, called PayPal Pride, which has recently started a network in the UK dedicated to equal opportunities for employees of every race, religion, skin colour, sexual orientation, disability and gender; and also our Reverse Mentoring initiative in the UK where members of the senior management team up with ‘Millennial’ employees to understand the thoughts and approaches of our digital natives to technology, social media, brand and careers.

 

These networks are all-inclusive, open to everyone, and we encourage all of our employees to support each other in the activities undertaken by the different affinity groups. Our communication regarding our various employee networks is done through many different channels, from the members of the network themselves, via internal newsletters and articles on the intranet, as well as regular emails from our company leaders on the UK Executive Team.
