Since Lullabot’s inception in 2006, we have fostered our company culture around the open-source value that everyone can make meaningful contributions and collaborate openly, regardless of their race, color, religion, sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy), national origin, age, disability or genetic information, or other non-merit based factors. We are committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and strive to be a place where everyone can do their best work and feel safe while doing so.
We not only believe this is a core part of our Be Human value; it’s crucial to our Engineering Values as well. In recruiting for our team, we welcome and value the unique contributions that you bring! See our latest job openings and learn about our core values.
By creating a diverse, inclusive environment at Lullabot, we’ll enjoy a more rewarding workplace atmosphere and contribute to everyone’s growth, on both a career and personal level. Lullabot’s future prosperity is directly tied to how diverse, inclusive, and equitable we are as a company.
How we support DEI
Embracing and building a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplace is not just a statement we make on our website; it’s something we actively work towards as a team in every capacity of what we do. It’s not a top-down requirement. It’s a genuine passion of our team as a whole. In continuing to further our efforts, we’re committed to:
Collaborating as a team to continuously improve DEI at Lullabot
We commit resources to our employee-led Inclusion and Equity working group and Mental Health working group. These two groups meet regularly to discuss ways of improving DEI and supporting those who struggle with mental health while implementing positive change.
Educating all team members
We require all employees to complete annual diversity and inclusion training. We believe that having every employee on the same page is critical to maintaining the culture we’ve worked hard to build while ensuring that it evolves inclusively.
Speaking up for what’s right
We’re not afraid to speak up when it’s necessary. If we didn’t, we wouldn’t be fully living our values as a company, and that’s just not right. Some examples include the public statements we’ve made about Black Lives Matter and Stop Asian Hate.
Talking about the issues, not ignoring them
With so many important issues and topics that affect the workplace and our everyday lives, we encourage employees to create Slack channels for respectful and meaningful conversation based on these topics. Some of these channels include #diversity-inclusion, #womenoflullabot, #rainbowbots, and #accessibots.
Supporting groups that make a difference
We support others who are also making a difference. For example, we financially support and participate in Drupal Diversity and Inclusion, a group of volunteers working to make the Drupal community a more inclusive and diverse place. We also provide financial support to Discover Drupal, an initiative that encourages developers from underrepresented groups to become Drupalers, and diversity scholarships such as those offered by Confab, a premier content strategy conference.
Focusing on pay transparency
Lullabot's HR and admin teams share our pay ranges for each role, include them on job posts, and share the methodology and data behind our annual compensation research. This transparency promotes pay equity and reduces bias in employee compensation.
Building employee equity
We are a 100% employee-owned ESOP, and most of our team are full-time employee-owners. Employees benefit directly from company growth and profitability as their company shares increase in value. There is no outside investment group or individual benefiting from our employee labor other than our employees.
I have had many doubts in the past, but everything that we are doing continues to encourage me that I made the right choice coming aboard.
