Who we are
​​​​Every day, diverse users and business owners use Yelp to meet a variety of needs. Having a diverse workforce designing features and partnering with local business owners helps us achieve our mission.

Yelp Employee Resource Groups
(YERGs)

We cultivate our diverse interests through Yelp Employee Resource Groups (YERGs). All employees are welcome to all groups! YERGs are voluntary, employee-led communities that serve as a resource for employees with shared social identities, characteristics or life experiences (for example, protected classes such as race, sex, disability, etc.), as well as their allies.

Diversity at Yelp

In late 2020, we released our latest Diversity at Yelp report. We still have work to do, but our consistent progress shows that our efforts are having a positive impact. Unique perspectives lead our people’s success, so representation at every level matters. From 2019 to 2020, the number of underrepresented minority (URM) managers increased 12.9%.
