Internal Representation & Support
To evaluate this pillar, we take into consideration a range of factors, including but not limited to:
- Employee representation
- Diversity, equity, & inclusion (DEI)
We weigh a company’s degree of public commitment primarily on their monetary contributions to DEI matters or organizations fighting racial injustice.
Forms of monetary support we look for:

In August 2020, eBay launched a new commerce series specifically to benefit the NAACP.
After its Blackout Tuesday post, eBay posted zero social media content around Black Lives Matter. In addition, eBay's Chief Diversity Officer Damien Hooper-Campbell was hired away by Zoom in May 2020, and it is unclear whether eBay has hired another Chief Diversity Officer in his stead.
We scour the company’s website and official social media channels to determine what message they are sending around racial injustice, how they are communicating it, and whether their communications are perceived as genuine or performative.
Public statement: We verify that companies have made a formal statement regarding racial injustice.
Social media: We consider how a company uses their platform(s) beyond performative allyship.
Representation: For companies that have the opportunity to showcase diversity in their feed, we consider whether they have adequate Black representation and BIPOC representation across their models.
