The Shopify Diversity Program


We believe that including a diverse range of voices at our events makes them better, stronger, more inclusive, and more fun. Our current definition of diversity includes people of any gender, including identity and expression; sexual orientation; disabilities, mental or physical; physical appearance, including but not limited to body size; ethnicity/culture; personal expression; and beliefs – religious, political or otherwise. Having these voices on our stages, on our volunteer teams, and in our audiences give us all opportunities to grow through hearing a variety of experiences, stories, and viewpoints.
