Some thoughts on diversity & inclusion
When I joined Glovo 4 years ago, the company’s presence was mainly in Europe and I remember how I had to explain that Arabic was written from right to left. Today, I work alongside talented colleagues from 79 different nationalities! The value and richness this diversity brought to our teams, performance and product is unparalleled. This is why we made it our mission, at ‘Colours of Glovo’ to work with leadership to foster a culture of inclusion and empower underrepresented groups.

Glovo takes an active role in fostering a culture of diversity, inclusion and belonging. Starting from a solid base of inclusive policies, Glovo encourages and enables employees to create Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) in order to tackle issues that are specific to DiB. I have always wanted to play an active role in making my workplace more inclusive, and that’s why I joined the Accessibility ERG, where we work hard to make Glovo more accessible to everyone.
Early in my career I felt that in order to be accepted I had to hide my diverse ability but after I decided to break down taboos and started sharing my experience with a diverse ability I came across Glovo. Glovo made it easier for me to be my authentic self as I felt acceptance and support from the very beginning. Being a main stakeholder for the Abilities at Glovo employee resource group and also working in the Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging team has helped me realize that Glovo is a very unique company and what makes it so special is that we take our CARE value to a global level. This is reflected across all levels within the organization as we foster a culture that increases understanding and strengthens connections within all communities so everyone feels welcome and supported.
DIB, People Experience & Volunteering
I joined Glovo 4 years ago, when we were 300 employees globally. I feel very proud to be working in a company that is increasingly concerned about Diversity and Inclusion as it grows. The creation of ERGs and Glovo Clubs giving employees the autonomy to address the most relevant topics for the community and engage in group activities where they identify the most enhance inclusion and belonging, and having the company promoting the celebration of significant dates like International Women’s Day and LGBTQIA+ Pride is really important to raise awareness and bring allies to the different causes and groups. We are now 10x bigger, present in countries with such different cultures, I believe we’re just getting started, but we’re definitely on the right path.
Controller - People
I have been with Glovo for a little over a year now as an Engineering Manager in the Engineering Team. One of my biggest concerns before accepting the offer was moving to a place and a company where I will be a minority of a minority group. For context, I am an Asian gay man which puts me in one of the smallest buckets of minorities in most places I go to. I was worried about how this would affect my opportunities and how I’d be able to execute effectively in my job. After joining, I was trying to assess how “open” the company was. It turned out that the company was very supportive in pushing for inclusivity within the workplace. I have attended several events promoting diversity including LGBTQ+ and Women in Tech in my first few months in the company. I met a bunch of other people from the queer community or otherwise belonging to other minority groups. I ended up co-founding another internal resource group which helps support Race, Ethnic and Culture minorities within the company. The support we are getting as well as being able to take part in these initiatives empower me to help push inclusion in the workplace and be a catalyst for change.
Glovo’s efforts towards creating an inclusive and safe environment for minority groups and especially for the LGBTQ+ community are unmatched in the industry. From the moment I started working at Glovo, not only did I feel safe and supported but I was also given a voice and tools to help lead the global inclusion efforts with my ideas and actions. Thanks to the resources dedicated to diversity, inclusion, and belonging, Glovo provides an empowering environment where individuals can thrive regardless of their background, ethnicity, diverse abilities, gender expression, or sexual orientation. We are put at the center and our issues are given the importance they deserve.
Localisation Project Manager
I realized Glovo breathes diversity since the first day I joined. Even before I started I knew about the different communities that are built here to support gender, race and sex orientation. What I wasn’t aware of is the amount of events and initiatives that each one of these groups were organizing and the amount of people joining and supporting. And not only that, even in the onboarding they work on raising awareness of unconscious bias that we all bring so that we start from the first day to become more inclusive. There are many allies within the group that will make sure everyone has a voice and avoid discriminations. It quickly becomes part of your day to day and also part of your DNA.

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are “voluntary, employee-led groups that serve as a resource for members and organizations by fostering a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with organizational mission, values, goals, business practices, and objectives. Sometimes they are also known as employee affinity groups, networks, business resource groups.
