On Veterans Day in the US and Remembrance Day in Canada, all of us at DoorDash celebrate and honor veterans for their service. Today, and throughout the month of November, we’re reflecting on what it means to serve and how we can act on our gratitude by supporting veterans and their caregivers.
Throughout November, in partnership with our [email protected] Employee Resource Group, veterans and allies at DoorDash participated in local 5k events and volunteer initiatives, with a blend of in-person and virtual opportunities designed for everyone to get involved. In the week leading up to Veterans Day and Remembrance Day, veterans and allies reflected on their service and joined together to share their favorite photos from active duty. On November 11, our teams participated in a moment of silence to remember those that made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, and we rounded out the day by bringing our veteran community together through a virtual beer and cheese tasting event.
“As we continue to grow, the [email protected] ERG’s mission is to foster an inclusive community of veterans, military spouses and allies and support DoorDash’s commitment to hire from the military community and be a military-friendly employer of choice.”Cassie Cristo, Sourcing Specialist II
DoorDash is proud to support veterans and their families on Veterans Day and Remembrance Day, but we know our work doesn’t stop there. Since launching our [email protected] ERG last year, we’ve brought together a community of proud veteran employees and allies who have bonded through shared experiences and supported each other through career development and professional growth.
We’ve also continued to work closely with the [email protected] ERG in veteran recruitment, committing to the Veteran Hiring Pledge to actively hire veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces and joining the Department of Defense’s Military Spouse Employment Partnership, which provides career opportunities for military spouses. Earlier this year, to honor these commitments, we hosted our inaugural “DoorDash Hires Heroes” event, dedicated to veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses.
To all the courageous veterans and to those who care for you: we at DoorDash thank you for your service, sacrifice, and bravery.
