Sponsor Spotlight: Etsy – proud sponsor of the LGBTQ+ Award

The Diversity in Tech awards are delighted to have Etsy as the official sponsor of the LGBTQ+ Award at this year’s ceremony.

Etsy is the global marketplace for unique and creative goods. It’s home to a universe of special, extraordinary items, from unique handcrafted pieces to vintage treasures.

In a time of increasing automation, it has been Etsy’s mission to keep human connection at the heart of commerce. That’s why they built a place where creativity lives and thrives because it’s powered by people. ‘We help our community of sellers turn their ideas into successful businesses. Our platform connects them with millions of buyers looking for an alternative – something special with a human touch, for those moments in life that deserve imagination.’

Nicole Cuellar-Lopez, Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Etsy believes:

‘’Etsy is proud to sponsor the LGBTQ Inclusion Awards at this year’s Diversity in Tech Awards.  As champions of all types of diversity both in our workplace and in the world, it is meaningful and impactful to recognize technology leaders that exercise these principles in their daily lives.  We couldn’t be more excited to support the past and future successes of all of the award candidates put forth to receive the LGBTQ Inclusion Award this year.’’

As a company, they strive to lead with their own guiding principles and help spread ideas of sustainability and responsibility, an impact that can reach far beyond the business itself.

‘Given that almost 9 out of 10 Etsy sellers are women entrepreneurs, we have been naturally pulled toward efforts that address gender equity in the workplace. We have continually invested in recruiting, developing, and retaining diverse talent with a focus on gender, but there’s still work to do, especially in our technical functions. We hope to continue our long-term work in changing this dynamic both at Etsy and in the technology industry as a whole, and will continue to share our progress.’ – Etsy News
