Diversity & Inclusion

What makes you you, makes us Yext.

We believe inclusion and diversity are fundamental to building a strong, supportive company, workplace culture, and community.

But, we're not just talking the talk. In 2021, we built out a dedicated Diversity & Inclusion team to embed those ideals and foster a culture of belonging into all aspects of the business policies, procedures, and programs. We take an analytical approach to increasing diverse representation at all levels by evaluating data, building community partnerships, and developing inclusive, accessible best practices.

Our strategy for success is built on a three-pillared approach:

Fostering Community: Inclusion, Belonging, Connection

What makes you YOU? We know sharing your whole self at work and feeling accepted can help create a fulfilling professional experience. Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) bring together like-minded employees to form communities based on common experiences and interests.

Business Impact: Procedures, Operations, Product

Companies with diverse representation perform better and create better products because they are more likely to understand employees and customer needs.

Talent: Retention, Development, Recruitment

We recognize the need for equality in the talent we're attracting and we know increasing diverse representation is an important step toward fostering a more inclusive environment and culture. We're creating opportunities for our employees to grow and develop, as well as identifying and leveraging relationships with talent partners to create meaningful change.
