Inclusivity & Diversity

Every person and pet is welcome.

Kinship is committed to making pet care a more inclusive space.

Our Pledge

If there’s one thing we learn from our pets, it’s this: accept and love people as they are. We believe prejudice has no place at Kinship, no purpose in society, and no justification in our shared human experience.

So, we pledge to increase access and inclusion across pet ownership, care, health, and our industry. And contribute to a more caring and inclusive world.

Here are the steps we’re taking now:

  1. Prioritizing inclusive hiring and investing in attracting diverse talent.

  2. Bringing a diverse group of assessors to every interview process.

  3. Providing unconscious bias training across our teams internally.

  4. Building an internship program focused on giving BIPOC college students industry immersion and on-the-job learning over 13 weeks.

  5. Promoting businesses owned by BIPOC, Women, and Non-Binary Individuals through our Leap Venture’s partnership and social networks.

Looking forward

It’s easy to believe things won’t ever change, yet change is all around us: turbulent, but necessary to create a just, caring world.

As we greet everyone with the respect due to them as human beings, and the compassion for their personal struggles—which we may not understand or be privy to—we will grow towards our best selves. We may not change the world for everyone, but we may change someone’s world forever.
