Travel means discovering new perspectives and experiencing diverse cultures, and it should be for everyone. Reflective of that, we know that Skyscanner will be strongest when our team is both inclusive and diverse. We’re committed to taking that journey together, recognising, and challenging everyday biases, removing obstacles to inclusion and ensuring that all of our people can thrive as their authentic selves.

That’s why, as part of our wider Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion strategy, we have a number of employee networks. These networks educate and empower everyone in the business to champion equality in the areas of race, LGBTQ+ inclusion, gender, accessibility and more.

This includes delivering programmes such as our Anti-Racism training, marking significant awareness days and celebrations across the year (Pride, International Women’s Day, Black History Month to name but a few) and ensuring we build Skyscanner’s products in a way that makes them accessible to all.

It’s also why, as leaders of the travel industry, we know we play a key role in ensuring future generations are able to continue exploring the world around them, sustainably. Read more about our first steps towards sustainability.

Diversity is a cultural and organisational imperative for us: to build a first-class product for 100m travellers across the globe, we need to reflect the world within our business make up.

We’ve over 50 nationalities working at Skyscanner, with a strong culture of empathy, respect and care. It’s what drives the actions we take as individuals and as a company, and it’s this culture that will help us build a more diverse Skyscanner - and a more diverse functionality for travellers - day in, day out.
