Bandcamp is a global music community
Bandcamp is a global music community where fans directly support the artists they love. We believe that music is an indispensable part of culture and that artists—no matter their identity, community, genre, or size—must be compensated fairly and transparently for their work. Bandcamp welcomes and celebrates all manner of variance in ethnicity, race, culture, gender, and sexual orientation, among artists and our staff. And we take a stand on issues that matter to us and our communities. Each year we donate to EarthJustice to support their work on climate change and to NAACP LDF, to support their fights for racial justice. In the neighborhood of our store and performance space in Oakland we partner with organizations that create opportunities for people of color. And we match the donations our staff make each year to support social change and social good organizations.
We work with colleges and universities that have a track record of graduating a high proportion of women and Black/Latinx, and develop relationships with student groups with the goal of hiring under-represented people in tech. We also have developed a hiring process that is based on research about ways to reduce the biases that all of us have.
The dedication to diversity and inclusion starts with our CEO and is something we value across Bandcamp. We know that, even as a small company, we have the ability to open doors to people who are under-represented in tech, and that can have a ripple effect. In a recent staff survey, more than four out of five staff said they felt that Bandcamp leadership and individual managers have made diversity, equity, and inclusion a priority.
