Diversity at Pandora
Pandora is committed to playing a role in creating a more equitable society in which our business, employees, and communities will thrive.
Our goals are:
- Increase the percentage of US employees of color from 35% to 45% by 2020, starting with our main hubs (Oakland, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles).
- Commit to gender, racial & ethnic promotion parity by 2020.
- Reflect the diversity of our audience, musicians, and local communities across our business in our brand collateral, music partnerships, and live events.
All of this simply means that we are building and fostering a diverse workforce that is a true reflection of music – empowering, inspiring, and unique – where all of our employees feel at home to perform their best and be themselves. In addition to amplifying a culture that celebrates our differences, Pandora Mixtape, PRIDE, and Women are three Communities at Pandora that provide more support, visibility, and empowerment to our underrepresented employees.
Communities at Pandora
Music at Pandora
Music is the soul of our company, and we have many opportunities for our employees to connect with the artists or songs they love. Whether it's catching an onsite performance, or playing instruments with coworkers, we encourage everyone at Pandora to discover what moves them.
Several of our offices host intimate, stripped-down sessions for our employees from artists across all styles of music and comedy. Past sets include Hermitude, Ben Harper, Aurora, Ryan Bingham, and Dr. Dog.
Beyond the office, we are uniting bands, brands, and fans through music discovery. Our shows include Pandora at SXSW, Pandora Presents, and custom shows such as Noche de Musica. And for our employees who like to put on a show themselves, we have Pandora Performs, our annual talent show where past performances have included Bhangra dancing, comedy, a 90s cover band, and even a string quartet. Check out some highlights from last year’s show below!
Giving At Pandora
We believe Pandora and our employees can make a lasting impact on our communities. We offer many opportunities for our employees to flex their philanthropic muscles and support the neighborhoods in which we work.
Volunteer Time Off
Each year Pandora employees receive 40 hours of paid volunteer time off to support causes they are passionate about or to participate in Pandora's organized volunteer events, from teaching kids how to play instruments, assisting the homeless and families in need, bringing the power of music to the elderly, and many more rewarding causes.
Music Education and Enrichment
Our Giving program aims to unleash the infinite power of music by supporting organizations that bring music education and enrichment to our communities. These efforts range from small-scale volunteer events that bring the healing power of music to vulnerable populations to larger initiatives such as partnering with Little Kids Rock to bring music education programs to schools in our neighborhoods.
