Gender Transition at Pinterest

Since joining Pinterest I have had the privilege of working with some amazing and inspiring people. Our mission as a company — to bring everyone the inspiration to create the life they love — resonates strongly with me as I think back to the people I have known over the years as an advocate and practitioner of inclusion. These are former colleagues, friends, allies, family members who find their inspiration and courage to make tough choices in life, to seek out futures that are meaningful to them. As I reflect on my personal journey, I often ask myself where I am on my journey of inclusion and allyship, and I humbly ask my Pinterest peers and colleagues where they are on theirs in a variety of ways.

In our journey of inclusion at Pinterest, I am so extremely proud to share that I worked with a group that developed an important resource for colleagues who are transitioning at work. Pulling together knowledge, experience and humility, we published an internal guide to gender transition to serve as a resource for our employees.

Making Pinterest’s employee culture safe and supportive for people who are transitioning is an important part of living our values. We are deeply committed to creating and sustaining a work environment where everyone — regardless of sex, gender or gender identity — feels valued. We approach this commitment through employee resource groups, insurance medical coverage policies that are fully WPATH (World Professional Association of Transgender Health) compliant, paid family leave, and now, a clear process to support employees who are transitioning.

Today we share our internal resource publicly for the first time. I am extremely grateful for the partnership among my colleagues, and I hope this resource will be useful to other organizations and companies who are on their respective journeys of inclusion. I invite you to read our Newsroom post about the gender transition guide.
