Our diverse global community makes Airbnb possible
Building an inclusive platform for all hosts and guests is our greatest goal, and we’re always working to improve it.
At the heart of our mission is the idea that people are fundamentally good and every community is a place where you can belong. I sincerely believe that [discrimination] is the greatest challenge we face as a company. It cuts to the core of who we are and the values that we stand for.
Our hosts have the power to end discrimination through experiences of human connection. Our Director of Diversity & Belonging, David King, shares strategies for cultivating unbiased hospitality.
Our global community never fails to amaze us with their stories of kindness and connection. Our #OneLessStranger movement shares these moments of empathy and discovery with the world.
Our community is what makes Airbnb possible. This story of love and pride is a perfect example of how our hosts and guests inspire us to build a better platform to enable global belonging.
This portrait series was led by our Black@ Airfinity group and allies, who are also a part of our global community of hosts and guests, to spark conversations about racial discrimination and #BlackLivesMatter.
Understanding bias and belonging
One of the ways we’re fighting discrimination is through unconscious bias training. To help our members understand discrimination and the biases that cause it, we’ve created this toolkit exploring bias and other factors that influence people’s decisions, even without their knowledge.
Taking action together
Airbnb Citizen advocates for progress by working together with our global community. This is where we share tools for learning and advocating, ideas from leading thinkers, news on the status of home sharing and ways to take action.
Helping our hosts create belonging
Shared understanding is essential to building more welcoming and inclusive Airbnb experiences. Our expanded Help Center has answers to many real-world questions about our nondiscrimination policy.
We want to hear from you
We’re inspired by the vibrancy of our Community Center, where our hosts share stories and ideas with each other, that delight us and motivate us to build a better platform. Share your experiences of human connection and spark a discussion.
