Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We want to provide the best employee experience in SaaS. That means making Hootsuite a place where everyone feels safe, welcomed, valued, and empowered to do their best work without compromising who they are.

#PayUpForProgress

Hootsuite pledges to honour equal pay for all employees, regardless of factors such as gender, sexual orientation, neurodiversity, age, race, or ethnicity.

Through measurable actions, beginning with annual Pay Equity Assessments, we aim to address and eliminate existing pay gaps within the organization.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee

By forming a dedicated committee that works closely with our Executive Team, we aim to integrate DE&I within every facet of our business.

In addition to educational initiatives, the committee helps ensure that Hootsuite is strategically aligned when it comes to prioritizing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.

Becoming allies for diversity

Real connection begins with learning about each other. Through our partners, we seek to learn and address the challenges faced by underrepresented groups. Their support also increases our pipeline of diverse talent, provides an opportunity to expand our network, and helps our leaders build diverse teams where everyone feels engaged and included.

“Belonging isn’t about asking people to fit in. It’s about asking them to be who they are and be the best version of themselves.”

A culture built on inclusion

At Hootsuite, we consider diversity and inclusivity throughout the employee lifecycle—from a prospective employee’s first point of contact, throughout the recruitment process, and well after hiring.

Accessible Recruitment Process

Throughout the hiring process, we ask candidates to raise any need for accommodation to help eliminate barriers to success and to keep our career opportunities accessible to all.

Hootsuite Referral Program

We make a donation to a charitable organization for every successful hire of a referral who self-identifies as a member of an underrepresented group. This aims to inspire diversity within Hootsuite, and better reflect the communities and customers we serve.
