Tinder Creates New ‘VP of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Culture’ Role

Tinder has created a new senior position which will help ensure that both the employee and membership experience is curated with Diversity, Equity and Inclusion as a priority.

Nicole Senior, who has already been with the dating app for over two-and-a-half years as the Director of Workplace Experience, has accepted the new role of VP of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Culture.

During that time, Senior has striven to create a strong sense of community and belonging. She was one of the leaders in setting up numerous employee resource groups, such as Black@Tinder, East Asians@Tinder and Pride@Tinder, to help people from all minorities feel at home.

Senior explained in her first public announcement: “What I have always treasured is how making small changes to our infrastructure can have such a big impact on people’s sense of belonging.

“The driving philosophy behind how I plan to approach my new role can be summed up simply.  When you feel confident that your company truly supports who you are, everyone can focus on bringing their best selves to work. I believe that’s the key to unlocking flow. 

“I look forward to the opportunity to continue evolving our employee experience and fostering a healthy work culture that is both innovative, highly collaborative and supportive for all employees.”

Match Group, as a whole, has been furthering its commitment to racial and social equality this year. In June, Jennifer Zephirin was hired as the company’s first Head of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Earlier this month, Global Dating Insights released a special podcast episode covering the topic, in association with Women In Dating. It featured Match Group’s Alexis Ferraro, Feeld’s Ana Kirova and Africlicks’ Dayo Akinrinade as guests.
