Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Fostering Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI)
Improving DEI is one of Coupa’s core commitments. Our DEI strategy rests on three pillars: Talent, Workplace, and Market & Communities.
Effective outreach and equitable hiring practices
Coupa's objective is to increase the hiring, retention, and promotion of people in underrepresented demographics.
Equitable and inclusive culture of belonging
Our employees model behavior that reflects our commitment to DEI. We have an environment where everyone feels respected.
We create DEI success
By supporting our suppliers, customers, and communities we lead by example, making DEI explicit through our actions.
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)
Break down barriers to women’s success by creating a community of individuals working together
Support our LGBTQ+ community by inspiring connection, inclusiveness, and diversity
Uplift and expand the underrepresented community at Coupa
Give Asian and Pacific Islander (API) employees the resources and support to exceed expectations.
Spent with diverse suppliers
We believe spending with diverse suppliers promotes economic development and provides valuable perspectives. Using our Business Spend Management platform and Supplier Diversity Dashboard, we track diversity among our suppliers.
In 2022, we spent $23 million with diverse suppliers, representing 6.7% of our total spend.
Community Partnership with The GenderCool Project
Coupa built a partnership with The GenderCool Project to help us further prepare for future leaders of tomorrow. GenderCool is a youth-inspired movement that replaces misinformed opinions with the positive, powerful experience of meeting transgender and non-binary young people.
Felt less burnt-out
Empower ERG MEvolution Program
Many women face huge challenges. Too often, the result is low energy and feeling alone. Empower saw an opportunity to support our female colleagues through MEvolution, a science-based personal growth program that measures and increases human capacity by teaching people how to manage, direct, and optimize their energy.
McKinsey Connected Leadership Academies Partnership
Through our new partnership with the McKinsey Black, Hispanic/Latino, and Asian Leadership Academies, we support career advancement. The Academies are designed to help participants from marginalized backgrounds build leadership capabilities and network with executives to assist them in reaching the next step in their careers.
