HubSpot 2018 Diversity Report

9,738 views

Published on

One year ago, HubSpot released its first ever Diversity Data report, joining companies like Apple, Google, and Intel in sharing a snapshot of the composition of our company by gender, ethnicity, and age, along with our plans to make HubSpot more diverse and inclusive as we grow. Twelve months later, we’ve seen some meaningful strides, some learnings we can use to improve as we grow, and some areas where frankly we had hoped to move the needle faster. This deck provides a comprehensive look at our data, along with our assessment of what worked and what we’ve learned along the way.

HubSpot 2018 Diversity Report

  1. 1. HubSpot 2018 Diversity Report
  2. 2. Terms and Definitions: 2017 Report Cohort: Referring to our last published diversity report, which included snapshot employee data as of August 1, 2016. Today’s Cohort: Referring to our current data with active employees as of January 15, 2018. New Hires: Includes all hires made from January 1st, 2017 until January 15, 2018. “Technical Roles / Tech”: HubSpot’s Product, Engineering, or Business Enablement teams “Non-Technical Roles / Non-Tech”: HubSpot’s Support, G&A, Marketing, Sales, and Services teams “Leadership”: All employees with one or more direct reports, regardless of title or management level. In order to better communicate our analysis to external readers who may not be familiar with our team breakouts, we’ll be publishing our data based on the following criteria:
  3. 3. A note on our employee self-identification process As new HubSpotters join our team, they’re asked to provide a variety of onboarding information, including the following self-identification attributes: Gender (Global): ● Male ● Female ● Gender Neutral ● Decline to Identify Race/Ethnicity (US Only): ● American Indian/Alaska Native ● Asian ● Black or African American ● Hispanic or Latino ● Two or More Races ● White

  7. 7. Our growth story: In 2016, only 25% of our leadership positions were filled by women. We’ve since doubled down on supporting the growth of our female employees, giving them programs, resources, and mentorship opportunities to continue their careers at HubSpot. Moving into 2018, we have 133 women in these roles globally, accounting for 45% of all leadership positions. Representation by Gender 25% 32% 45% 2016 2017 2018 Women in Leadership
  8. 8. Changes to HubSpot’s Board of Directors wth story: In October 2017, Jill Ward joined Julie Herendeen and Lorrie Norrington as the third female member on our Board of Directors. HubSpot now stands as part of the 20% of global companies with 3+ female board members. Research shows that having three or more women in the boardroom changes the dynamics and enhances the likelihood that women’s voices are heard*. * https://www.msci.com/documents/10199/04b6f646-d638-4878-9c61-4eb91748a82b

  13. 13. Representation by Ethnicity in the US Our growth story: In mid-2016, we implemented two initiatives to meaningfully change our approach to hiring a diverse population: the Rooney Rule (as used in the National Football League) and the Norrington Grant (a discretionary budget geared specifically toward bringing top notch hires of diverse backgrounds, named after one of our powerhouse female board members, Lorrie Norrington). Since that launch, our Product and Business Enablement teams have seen the biggest impact from these initiatives with an 11% and 7% increase in employees who identify as a minority group since our 2017 report, respectively. 20% 21% 2016 2017 2018 Minority-identifying employees in technical roles 23%

  17. 17. Our growth story: Company-wide, HubSpot’s employee population has shifted upwards in age since our last diversity report in 2017. At that time, our report showed 29% of our employees were under the age of 26. Since that time, we’ve seen a 4% shift away from the 16-25 cohort and into the 26-45 age cohort(s). With our changing employee demographic, we’re working harder than ever to support new parents and their growing families. We recently announced increases to our primary and secondary parental leave, as well as the subsidization of egg freezing procedures for employees. Representation by Age Percent of HubSpot’s employee population taking advantage of our primary and secondary parental leaves 1.3% 3.0% 2015 2016 2017 3.7%
  18. 18. LGBTQ+ Alliance Encouraging lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer employees to have a strong community and support at work. People of Color at HubSpot (POCaH) Empowering HubSpotters of color by creating safe spaces, offering educational opportunities to the larger HubSpot community, and celebrating the diverse experiences of our employees, customers, and partners. ParentSpot Providing HubSpot parents with global access to resources, community, programming, and benefits to help them start, grow, and celebrate their families. Women@HubSpot Empowering women in tech and support women’s professional development through trainings, workshops, networking events, discussions with female leaders, and more. External Programming Connecting HubSpotters to the local community with events for First Gens in Tech, Women’s Web Application Development Workshops, and many more. Flexible/Remote Work Encouraging HubSpotters to do their best work, wherever they are. Revoking the nine-to-five structure, employees manage their own flexible schedules to better meet their needs, bringing new meaning to the term “work-life balance”. We're proud of HubSpot's initiatives, programming, and employee-led resource groups and that help create safe, open environments for personal and professional growth for everyone.

  20. 20. The fine print: Our numbers reflect the HubSpot employee population as of January 15th, 2018. At this time, we had 2,135 full-time employees worldwide, with 1,537 located in the United States. Gender and Age data is global and Ethnicity data is US only. Visualizations do not include those who chose not to identify. Ethnicity reflects the EEO-1 categories required by the US government reports; we understand that these are imperfect categorizations of both race and ethnicity.
