What we do

At Twitter, we're shaking things up. The Twitter Intersectionality, Culture and Diversity Team (ICD) launched the #GrowTogether strategy in September 2017. Our mission is to power positive global change by fostering respectful conversations, creating deeper human connections, and encouraging diverse interactions among individuals and teams, across our organization, and on the platform resulting in a more globally inclusive culture and more globally diverse workforce.

We're building a platform where all voices can be heard, creating fun ways for people to express themselves, and growing our business in a way that makes us proud.

We innovate, experiment, and move at a fast pace. We’re a learning organization with a growth mindset, and we’re always looking for ways to improve our product and ourselves.

We’re more alike than we think. But, we’re also pretty complex. We come from families and communities with varied interests, viewpoints, and backgrounds which all weave together to make us, us.

We all gravitate to places where we can be our true selves. An inclusive culture is important in the workplace, and beyond. So, just be you. We respect it.

Review the complete list of Twitter's Affinity Groups and Business Resource Groups, their individual missions, and details on how to get involved.

Creating a diverse workforce takes teamwork! We’re learning and respecting our intersectionality and building a culture we can all take part in. The rest is up to every Tweep to make it happen.
