This year, we launched our second D&I report, which highlights some of the steps we’re taking to build a more diverse and inclusive workforce, workplace, and marketplace.
In 2017, we led the first Diversity Pop-Up during eBay Open, where we got to hear about your experiences on our platform. This year we launched our second Diversity & Inclusion report along with two new initiatives to better our commitment to a more diverse and inclusive marketplace.
The first initiative is a Seller Diversity Questionnaire. This questionnaire is voluntary, and your answers will be anonymized.

You will also receive an email for the Seller Diversity Questionnaire and the Seller Diversity Advocate Program application today. We ask that you please complete the questionnaire openly and honestly and consider applying to the Seller Diversity Advocate program if you’re interested in becoming an advocate for diversity in your hometown. The first cohort of SDAs will be announced at eBay Open 2018.

Thank you, as always, for selling on eBay.
