At Zillow Group, we have a dedicated team whose focus is to lead the company to a more equitable and inclusive environment through various initiatives called "Core Pathways." Through employee participation in our Core Pathways, we are able to impact an environment where employees feel they can belong, thrive and create the best work of their careers. Pathways include employee-led Affinity Networks (or Employee Resource Groups) and Community Conversations with external speakers who cover topics like philanthropy, Equity and Belonging, and current events.
Our Learning & Development team empowers employees to increase their knowledge, build their skills, and own their careers. Our dedicated internal mobility team helps employees navigate new job opportunities at the company, Insights Training provides employees a chance to learn more about workplace relationships and Careers Onstage gives employees an opportunity to learn about colleagues' career paths and how it could inspire their own.
