Over the last six years, Airbnb has been working hard to fight discrimination and build inclusion.
Today, we shared a new update on our work, including the first data from Project Lighthouse, an initiative we launched in 2020 to uncover and address disparities in how people of color experience our platform, and how we are using these findings to guide our work to fight discrimination and make Airbnb more open and inclusive.
Project Lighthouse was developed in partnership with Color Of Change, the nation’s largest online racial justice organization, and with input from other national civil rights and privacy organizations.
This work is only possible thanks to the insight and guidance of key civil rights partners. Here is what some are saying following the release on the report:
