Diversity Equity & Inclusion

Our 2023 DE&I Report

Beric Alleyne, Global Head of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

A testament to our collective dedication to DE&I.

Today, we published our eighth annual Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Report, capturing a few ways we continue to demonstrate our commitment to building a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable organization. 

As a global marketplace bringing together millions of sellers and buyers across more than 190 markets, our purpose is to connect people and build communities to create economic opportunity for all. We know diversity makes us better, inclusion makes us stronger, and equity gives everyone a fairer opportunity to reach higher. 

While we humbly recognize the strides we’ve made so far, we know there is still much ground to cover together. We are dedicated to being for everyone, leveraging every lesson learned and success achieved as stepping stones toward the future.

Our DE&I strategic objectives 

We’ve established four objectives goals to guide our DE&I strategy: Increase representation; cultivate a sense of belonging; engage our communities and allies; and build inclusive technology. Some key highlights of our work in 2023: 

  • We reinvigorated programs and policies to ensure that every employee feels a deep sense of belonging. To gain a stronger understanding of employee experience, we launched our first-ever Inclusion Index. Measuring seven key elements of inclusion, the index will help us measure progress over time and determine how we can do better as a workplace.
  • The rise of AI has created many thoughtful conversations around well-being and unconscious bias. To ensure we are building equity proactively into our AI tools, eBay hired our first Head of Responsible AI and established a Responsible AI Committee.
  • Our Communities of Inclusion remain integral to the work we do. In 2023, in-person celebrations and learning opportunities flourished. Our 11 COIs hosted more than 360 global events, reaching more than 17,000 attendees.
  • We are dedicated to ensuring that everyone’s pay is a direct reflection of their impact. Our eighth annual study of our gender pay equity, looking at total compensation (including salary, bonus, and annual stock award value), resulted in a gender pay ratio of 100.5% in the U.S. and 100.3% for all regions. 
  • We remain committed to data transparency. Through the disclosure of our demographic data and third-party assurance, we aim to not only highlight our workforce changes but also identify areas for continued growth and improvement.

Making our strategy, goals, and data transparent to the public is important to us. To learn more, check out our full 2023 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Report
