We've made diversity a priority here at Drift from day one and we want to hold ourselves accountable. So we are happy to announce the launch of the first edition of Drift's Diversity Report. We will continue to lean in on diversity to improve in all areas.
How the team at Drift compares to other tech
companies on diversity
My mom immigrated from Ecuador, my dad immigrated
from Puerto Rico. Both started small businesses and
worked for themselves, and they worked extremely
hard. I was always surrounded by this notion that you
could create something out of nothing … Without
diversity, we miss out on the incredible value and the
incredible lessons that people from different cultures
and backgrounds can bring to our teams.

The people you work with have a
huge effect on how you feel about
the company you work at.
We recently asked 100 people on
Twitter, “What is the MOST important
aspect of making a decision on a job?”
More than half responded that it was

When it comes to building an
amazing team — a team that’s full of
amazing people — diversity is crucial.
Yes, diversity is crucial to company
culture, but it’s also just as crucial to
a company’s bottom line.
Did you know that companies with
more diverse teams outperform
companies with less diverse teams?
According to McKinsey research,
racially diverse companies are 35%
more likely to have financial returns
that are above industry norms.
In the US, there’s a linear relationship
between diversity and improved
financial performance …
For every 10% increase in the racial &
ethnic diversity of a company’s senior
executive team, earnings rise 0.8%.
At Drift, we take diversity seriously,
and we believe in being transparent
about our diversity goals as well as
how diverse we are today.
So we decided to put together a
scorecard to see how we’re doing on
diversity compared to other tech
I was born in Nicaragua and spent most of my life
there before coming to the U.S. in 1993. One of the
things I’ve learned to appreciate the most is that
you have to have diversity in thinking. Technology,
startups, progress—they’re the result of mixing
together all of these different ideas that come from
