Representation Matters 

GoDaddy believes teams with different identities, backgrounds, and experiences attract and retain the best talent; build better products and services; help inspire customer loyalty; and enable collaboration and innovation. We’re committed to continually fostering an environment that supports a balanced representation of those who have been historically underrepresented in the workplace — from our Board of Directors to employees just entering the workforce. We’ve made progress over the years, and we’ll continue to make GoDaddy representative of our customers and communities.

Board of Directors Diversity1 

Our business and ability to enhance long-term value are supported by our mission to make opportunity more inclusive for all through our work to serve our diverse customer base. It is important to our company that the Board reflects these values. As such, our Board, in conjunction with the Nominating and Governance Committee, seeks qualified individuals to serve as directors who broaden, among other things, the mix of experience, skills, knowledge, personal and professional backgrounds, age, and tenure of our Board. Our Board and Nominating and Governance Committee seek diverse director candidates as a reflection of the diversity among both our employees and customers.

For more information on our Board please review our 2024 Proxy Statement on our Governance page.
