About Yelp's Belief in Diversity and Inclusiveness: Yelp believes that diversity is an expression of all the unique characteristics that make us human: age, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, and education — and that's just a few. We're committed to increasing diversity and transparency both here at Yelp and in Silicon Valley. At Yelp, inclusiveness is just as important as diversity. We cultivate a sense of belonging through company supported employee resource and affinity groups: Awesome Women in Engineering, Colorcoded, DiverseBurst, Health & Wellness, OUTburst, VetConnect, Women at Yelp, Yelp Parents, YelpCares and many more!
