At Match Group, our mission is to help every single person find a meaningful connection. We celebrate the lives of all of our members, embracing differences of sexual orientation, gender and its expression, religious background, marital status, family structure, age, mental and physical health and ability, racial and cultural identity or background, and educational and socioeconomic status.
We strive to serve all audiences on our various platforms and implement progressive internal and external campaigns in support of this goal.
These beliefs and practices are also foundational to our workplace. Building a best-in-class, inclusive culture where each of our employees has equal chance to grow, be heard and feel like they belong is of tremendous importance to us. Our company has made progress in many areas, including pay equity, modern fertility benefits, mental health awareness and resources, and generous parental leave programs.
Across the company, several Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) have been formed, bringing together employees with shared characteristics or life experiences. These groups work to address workplace needs and community issues close to their hearts. Together with colleagues, they seize opportunities to complement the organization’s objectives and goals, and to improve the workplace for everyone.
Additionally, we continue to reinforce our commitment to diversity and inclusion by attracting candidates from a wide array of backgrounds and focusing our sourcing efforts on candidates from underrepresented groups.
Our brands like Tinder and OkCupid have launched external campaigns such as #RepresentLove, #DTFightTheBinary and offer more than 30 gender pronouns for users around the world (OkCupid started this back in 2014). Tinder successfully petitioned to have interracial couple emojis created. All of our brands host days of service where our employees give back to the local communities and to organizations that are near and dear to our hearts.
We are one of the only publicly-traded tech companies to be led by a female CEO and female President. Nearly 40% of our workforce is female. We still have work to do, but we’re proud of our efforts to facilitate a diverse and inclusive workforce - and our efforts to serve our diverse audiences - around the world.
