Diversity and inclusion

As a company, we strive to be the change we want to see in the workplace. And the workplace we want to see in this world is radically inclusive.

Asana strives to create an empowering and welcoming workplace culture. A critical element of that is working constantly to create a more diverse and inclusive team in support of our mission to help humanity thrive by enabling all teams to work together effortlessly.

Building diverse teams and an inclusive product means creating a more inclusive environment for both our current and future employees, and we believe a diverse and inclusive company contributes to greater business success.

Asana’s D&I program works to create a culture of diversity and inclusion across three key areas: Thriving Now, Recruiting for the Future, Building on the Past.

Thriving now

The ultimate goal of our work is to create a successful business with a thriving and inclusive culture where all Asanas can bring their full selves to the office. We want staff to feel engaged, happy, and healthy—and that they belong here.

Learning what matters to each other

To help ensure Asanas are aware of and support our mission, we provide D&I onboarding as well as regular company-wide learning sessions on a variety of topics, like allyship, race, religion, and unconscious bias.

Creating a mindful environment

As part of our effort to create an environment that’s respectful of every Asana’s needs, we offer 16 weeks paid leave to all new parents, and we have gender neutral restrooms throughout our offices.

Celebrating and supporting our identities with employee resource groups

More than half of Asanas belong to one or more of the following resource groups, which focus on building a trusted, safe community, add value through volunteer work, and serve as a resource for professional development.

Engaging and developing employees

Using a third party, we conduct an annual company-wide employee engagement survey to measure sentiment across key areas, including overall satisfaction, belonging, communication and decision making, growth and advancement, and fairness.

We give every Asana access to executive-level coaching and development including the 2-day Conscious Leadership Group workshop.

We’re committed to equal pay and have taken Glassdoor’s Equal Pay Pledge. We’ll also be expanding our audit and analysis to focus on various intersectionalities, including non-binary genders, race, and ethnicity.

Recruiting for the Future

We endeavor to provide a hiring and working experience in which all people feel they are equally respected and valued, and we embrace every individual’s gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, citizenship, or any other aspect that makes them unique.

Partnering with pioneers

Asana’s partners are key to our long-term success in diversity & inclusion and provide a space for learning and innovation, as well as a critical lens through which to evaluate our own processes.
