What it means to us

Creating a diverse, equitable and inclusive culture where anyone feels like they belong takes an inclusion mindset, awareness and intentionality. But perhaps most of all, it takes action. Here’s what Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging means to us.


An inclusion mindset

Having an inclusion mindset means applying a growth mindset to inclusion.

Onwards and upwards

Global workforce by gender

US ethnicity data

We’re moving in the right direction, but we know there’s more work to be done.

Bear with us, there are still a few gaps in our reported ethnicity data which is currently US-only. We work hard to collect responses from our people around the world and do periodic calls for disclosure, which is always optional, to get us closer to 100%.

*Native American & Indigenous includes American Indian, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islanders as categorized by U.S. government reporting standards.

Our aspirational goals

Spotify’s committed to building a workforce that is reflective of the creators, artists and consumers on the platform.

Our approach to inclusive hiring starts with aligning our understanding around representation and inclusivity

A global approach with a local focus

At Spotify, we rally around global Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging areas that are designed and implemented to reach all band members, wherever they are in the world.

Some of our global focus areas include:

LGBTQIA+ inclusion

Disability inclusion

Racial equity

Women & gender equity
