About This Session

This session will cover how DEIB became a strategic pillar of the Headspace organization. You'll learn:

  • how Headspace leadership embraced Employee-driven transformation - defining and driving Headspace's 'Durable Legacy'
  • how Headspace changed the way we work - crafting our Diversity and Inclusion Product Development Principles
  • how Headspace harnessed partnership to reach new, more diverse audiences
  • how Headspace moved beyond 'free' - utilizing Social Impact as a growth lever and business driver
  • How DEIB became strategic advantage - the story of Headspace's acquisition of Shine

In summer 2020, in the wake of the George Floyd murders, the employees at Headspace demanded change. Believing in the power of the Headspace platform to improve the health and happiness of the world, they demanded to shift who we reached, how we worked, and who we 'were' in order to ensure we were reaching those underserved communities most in need of our services.

What resulted has been nothing short of transformational - to our organization, to our business, to our offering and our members.

At this private event, you'll hear the story of this transformation, and how it became a strategic advantage for the Headspace business.

There will also be plenty of time for Q&A.
