GoPro Celebrates Second Annual Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging Day
On March 2, 2022, GoPro employees around the world came together virtually to celebrate, learn and understand how we are all connected to the concepts of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion + Belonging (DEIB).
DEIB Day first grew out of local events in two of our European offices, and quickly grew to be embraced as a global event to encourage mindfulness, awareness and daily participation in actions that promote diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.
Our first-ever global event, held on February 24, 2021, consisted of a variety of activities, including the launch of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). We are thrilled to share that this year’s events were led by the very groups that have formed since the inauguration of ERGs at GoPro. Employees were encouraged to participate in any or all of the sessions available during the day:
- Meet your engineering heroeshosted by SHero | A panel discussion with five female engineers who help make GoPro products possible.
- Ask for help, hosted by Mental Health and Wellness | A partial screening of Netflix’s kayak movie The river runner and a candid conversation about mental health with the filmmaker and the athletes.
- Living at work with my family, hosted by Parenting and Families | A collection and sharing of stories of what home has grown to look and feel like during this global pandemic.
- New maternity: questions and answers with Rachel Atherton, hosted by EMEA DEIB Force | A conversation with GoPro athlete Rachel Atherton about the barriers to transitioning into motherhood while maintaining her career.
We are on an ongoing journey to ensure that we begin this work within. We are committed to becoming a more inclusive, equitable and diverse company and brand – representing the global communities where our employees and customers live, work and play.
