Voluntary Demographic Questions

Our mission at Twitch is to enable creators to make a living entertaining and educating their fans. We serve a diverse, global community and it's important that we have teams with a wide range of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives, in order to better serve our streamers and grow our business. All team members play a vital part in bringing our mission to life. At Twitch, we believe everyone has a role to play in creating an inclusive environment where everyone can thrive and grow.

In order to measure our effectiveness in recruiting a wide range of talent to Twitch, we invite all applicants to self-identify their gender, race and ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability and military veteran status.  It’s our policy to provide equal employment opportunities to all applicants based solely on their qualifications. Your voluntary self-disclosures will be anonymized in reporting, and will not be used in any aspect of employment related decisions, nor shared with hiring managers. Declining to self-identify will not subject you to adverse treatment. Twitch does not discriminate on the basis of gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, veteran or disability status, or any other protected group. 

Self-identification categories:

  • Gender: a person’s sex, as defined by their assigned sex at birth.
  • Gender Identity: a person's internal perception of their gender and how they label themselves (may or may not correspond to gender assigned at birth).
  • Race/Ethnicity: a person’s race (Asian, Black, Native American or Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, White, Two or More Races) and whether they identify as Hispanic/Latinx.
  • Sexual Orientation: a person's sexual identity in relation to the gender to which they are attracted.
  • Disability: a person who has a physical or mental impairment which substantially, or occasionally, limits one or more of their major life activities.
