Gender Strategies at Ancestry


Ancestry is committed to increase female representation in leadership and STEM roles.


Ancestry is a proud signatory of the Parity Pledge, which promises to interview and consider at least one qualified woman and person of color for every C-suite role. Ancestry is proud to engage and partner with organizations that are making strides to develop diverse talent and
increase representation in STEM including Women Tech Council, which focuses on the economic impact of women. Each year we also conduct compensation fairness analyses for gender and ethnicity to ensure our company continues to maintain pay parity. We also consistently review all promotion rates by gender and ethnicity.

At Ancestry, we are committed to helping everyone easily discover, craft and connect around their family story. To build a truly global product for all, we must attract and engage a diverse workforce with different voices, perspectives and backgrounds at the table. Our commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is one of the most important guideposts of our organization. We know actions speak louder than words when it comes to real and lasting change, which is why we are proud to join the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion.
