Pina is an equal opportunity employer. We embrace and celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. We are open to all groups of people without regard to age, color, national origin, race, religion, gender, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, marital status, or any other legally protected.

Therefore, we take the following steps to recognize and reduce our biases in the hiring process.

1. Awareness

We at Pina do our best to unravel and identify our unconscious biases through open conversation in the team and further education.

2. Gender neutral language

We use a Gender Decoder to check for stereotypical gendered words in our job descriptions and try to neutralize and balance them.

3. Standardized interviews

We work with a standardized interview procedure and evaluation matrix to focus on the factors that really matter to us - factors that contribute to Pina's success.

4. Diversity goals

As part of Pina's social impact strategy, we aim to have at least 1/3 of all employees and at least 1 investment board member from an underrepresented group. These goals help us to keep diversity at the top of our minds.

5. Celebrate cultural diversity

In order to enable our team members to celebrate their culture, each person can take an extra day off for the most important festivity or holiday in their culture.

If you have any feedback or ideas how we can even further reduce our biases in the hiring process, we are happy to hear from you. Just drop us a message at ✉️ [email protected].
