Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Intuit


Our Commitment

Our commitment to DEI is foundational to our company and explicit in our values as we work to create an environment where employees can do the best work of their lives. Our value of “Stronger Together” emphasizes the importance of diverse voices to deliver awesome results for our customers and fulfill our mission of powering prosperity for all.

Intuit is a place where people come to work because they believe it’s an environment where they can grow. Intuit isn’t just a place where a certain type of person can be successful. It’s a place where everyone can thrive. It’s for parents. It’s for underrepresented groups. It’s for refugees. It’s for LGBTQ+. There are opportunities here for everyone to belong.

Delivering on our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion

DEI has become even more important given the extraordinary challenges we’ve been facing, from public displays of systemic racism to the inequalities exacerbated by the current state of the world. While DEI has been a fundamental piece of our business since our founding, these current events have accelerated our efforts to ensure we’re delivering on our commitment to diversity. We’ve established new leadership roles and resources, created new listening forums and invested in building new capabilities all in service of supporting our employees, customers and communities.

Representation across all levels of Intuit

Representation is a key step in creating an inclusive and equitable environment where all employees can do the best work of their lives. Without representation, we cannot deliver for customers and achieve our mission. We have invested in programs and initiatives to foster DEI within our company. We declared True North Goals related to employee representation focused on increasing the percentage of women in technology roles as well as the percentage of our total U.S.-based workforce composed of underrepresented minorities.

Gender Data 2022

In FY22, we met our goal for the representation of women in technology reaching 33 percent of the technology organization. We set a goal to increase representation of women in technology roles at Intuit to 38 percent globally by FY25.*

*Data and goals do not include Credit Karma, which maintains separate record-keeping systems

Ethnicity Data 2022

While we have made progress in improving representation, we must do more. We set a goal to increase representation of underrepresented groups, those who identify as Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx and Native American, Native Alaskan and Native Hawaiian, to 19 percent of our U.S. based workforce by FY25.*

*Data and goals do not include Credit Karma, which maintains separate record-keeping systems.

Pay Equity

Pay equity is fundamental to our DEI strategy. We are committed to an ongoing focus on pay equity and the work we do twice a year to conduct a global, comprehensive analysis, make adjustments, and share the results to hold ourselves accountable and ensure continuous improvement. This includes a review of all job codes in which we have a sufficient number of employees for analysis and those employees have the same or similar job duties and compensation mix.

As of August 1, 2022, none of the identified job codes had statistically significant differences in pay between employees of different gender or between race/ethnicity in the U.S.

Empowering Women in Tech

We are proud of the continued progress we made in increasing the representation of women in technology. In FY22, we increased the percentage of women in our technology roles from 30% to 33%. 

This is due in large part to the supportive structure we’ve cultivated through Tech Women @ Intuit. It’s a strategic initiative that offers women in technology roles the programs and initiatives that support their success throughout their career lifecycle, from just starting out to excelling in their craft.

My managers are my biggest supporters. When I first started, I had a manager who had a vision for my path to promotion and became a real advocate for my career path. He found a mentor for me, who became my current manager. My manager has also been a very outspoken advocate for me. She always asks questions like, ‘How can we help you progress in your career?’ I've also been part of employee resource groups such as the Intuit’s Women’s Network and Intuit’s Latinos Network. I love the community they've built.

Equity for underrepresented talent

The Racial Equity Advancement Leadership (REAL) Team was created in 2020 to understand the nuance of the Black employee experience and provide meaningful counsel to the company’s strategy, the team’s evolution will continue to inspire change. We recently expanded the team to include Hispanic/Latinx, Native American, Native Alaskan, Native Hawaiian and Asian employees to ensure the voices of underrepresented employees are heard. 

In partnership with the REAL Team, our Talent Acquisition Team, people managers and with input from our 14 Employee Resource Groups, we are reexamining our hiring, retention, promotion and pay policies and practices to continue to attract talent from these underrepresented communities and foster more positive employee experiences once they are part of the Intuit family. This work is well underway. While we dedicated resources to increase representation of underrepresented communities at all levels, we acknowledge we did not meet our annual goal and have more work to do.

Through the REAL Team, we've been able to dive deep in the data, and really understand the intrinsic challenges and come up with some data-backed solutions to help our Black employees. (REAL stands for Racial Equity Advancement Leadership and was a team brought together to make substantial, lasting change in its pursuit of racial equality)

Inclusive Design

We continue to make progress in our ongoing initiative to apply inclusive design principles. Since FY21, we’ve made adjustments to products, training materials, marketing, and customer support resources. For example, our marketing campaigns reflect the diversity of our small-business customers. We've also removed harmful language that has historical roots in racism, oppression, and appropriation, as well as gendered language. In FY23, we’ll continue this work. 

From a customer standpoint, our product development teams are exploring and experimenting with ideas for improving the QuickBooks and TurboTax experiences for customers who have long COVID. In the spring of 2022, the World Health Organization and other health authorities officially recognized this as a disability, inspiring us to look into how we can adapt our products.

Our teams have made progress embedding accessibility into our design requirements and code reviews. Over the past 12 months, our teams have driven significant accessibility improvements, including delivering an 86% reduction in accessibility issues for an 82% improvement in quality score on our websites.

Intuit’s Employee Resource Groups

Nearly a quarter of Intuit’s related workforce participate in Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to drive high-impact programs, contribute to our DEI strategy and create an inclusive culture. These ERGs create community among those who identify as a specific demographic and their allies. They play an important role in building awareness of cultural diversity, identifying unconscious biases and initiating important conversations to drive meaningful change. 

In FY22, three of our ERGs—including the Intuit Latinos, Military, and Asia Pacific Networks—came together to develop and pilot an ERG-sponsored mentorship program. The program’s goal is to accelerate the development of future leaders by sharing expertise, skills, perspectives, and leadership values through networking and collaboration opportunities. Building on the pilot’s success, we’ll launch mentorship more broadly in FY23.

I am proud to be part of the Pride ERG, before Intuit had an official DEI team we had PRIDE and support. That support has only grown. DEI is truly ingrained in what we do and how we show up as members of the Pride community. More than that though, we have real impact on the lives of employees and the company; beyond even that - through our charitable work, our external outreach and partnership - I truly believe we save lives.

We can’t move the needle on equity alone

To make meaningful strides in representation, we’re increasing the aperture for recruiting to ensure we’re employing diverse talent across every level of the organization. We’ve expanded our external talent acquisition network to include more than 40 universities and student organizations, key annual conferences, partner associations and more to gain access to top underrepresented community talent for all functions and levels of roles. We’re proud to partner with the following organizations.
