Bringing Diversity & Inclusion Research to Practice at Pinterest


Through "Inclusion Labs," Pinterest has a unique partnership where we conduct innovative workforce research to better understand barriers to diversity and inclusion and use social science research to develop strategies to help mitigate those barriers. In this session, I'll share how "Inclusion Labs" came to be, specific strategies we've tried that have worked to improve diversity at Pinterest, and share a bit about what we have planned for the future.
You will learn:

  • What social science research we are testing to mitigate barriers.
  • How we experiment, test and implement new strategies.
  • Strategies that have worked, such as encouraging employees to stretch their networks for a great diversity in referrals.
