We champion diversity and inclusion every day to pave the way for a more inclusive and equitable financial future.
At Binance.US, diversity, equity, and inclusion are values we celebrate every day. Our mission is to empower people from all walks of life to access the world of crypto. That’s why we actively celebrate and recognize team members from diverse backgrounds, so that our workplace embodies values that resonate with the communities we serve.
Employee Groups for All Identities
To help foster inclusion and belonging, our Employee Research Groups (ERGs) are designed to support and connect employees who share common values, identities, interests, experiences, and more.
These spaces are essential for fostering cultural awareness, promoting unity, and combating prejudice and discrimination. Engaging in conversations and educating ourselves about our different community’s experiences can create an inclusive environment and work towards social justice and equity for all. ERGs are not exclusive to just members of a specific ethnicity either, as we firmly believe that you do not have to BE to BELONG.
Examples of ERGs at Binance.US include groups focused on women in the workplace, mental health, employees with disabilities, and many others focusing on Black, AAPI, LGBTQ+, and Indigenous cultures — to name a few.
Celebrating Diversity at Binance.US
In addition to our ERGs, our People Team organizes special programming throughout the year to foster unity among team members. This May, we curated a series of events to honor and support our team members who identify as Asian American and Pacific Islanders.
Celebrations included a trivia challenge about the AAPI community and its accomplishments, a food fest showcasing cuisine from Asian cultures, a surprise giveaway for those who shared pictures of cultural celebrations and traditions, and an employee-hosted panel discussion where leaders shared stories about growing up as immigrants in the U.S and Canada. The panel featured team members from within the organization sharing their diverse experiences as Asian Americans and served as a wrap-up to our celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Month.
The discussion encompassed a wide range of topics, including the immigrant experience, preserving traditions and even a healthy dose of KPOP — before circling back to the world of crypto. One panelist shared why she was drawn to the crypto industry:
“Crypto is really beautiful because you don’t have to get into an Ivy League school to get an education. There are many ways to learn and crypto allows you to learn in non-traditional formats […]. It’s a great way to learn about politics, finance, education, and more — all in one.”
Blockchain technology embodies the principles of decentralization, transparency, and inclusivity. Events like AAPI Heritage Month remind us of the strength that comes from embracing different perspectives and experiences. By embracing the AAPI community – as well as the many others that make up Binance.US – and supporting their unique contributions, we further create a more inclusive ecosystem for everyone to thrive in.
At Binance.US, we recognize the power of bringing together people from various backgrounds and perspectives and fostering a community that reflects the inclusive nature of blockchain technology. As we enter June, we eagerly anticipate engaging in conversations with the LGBTQIA+ community to honor Pride Month and uphold our commitment to this mission.
