Inclusion Groups

We want everyone in the Oniverse to feel comfortable being their authentic selves. Dedicated communities and safe and open feedback processes help drive this. Our Inclusion Groups are a key part of our growing D&I strategy.

  • On WomenConnectiOn logo

    Our network for women to inspire and support one another, promoting career development opportunities inside of On and for women in the communities we serve.

  • On OnPower logo

    This group exists to inspire, motivate and empower women in tech. The focus: advancing women’s skills and leadership potential to promote and foster greater female participation – and success – within the technology space.

  • On Iridescence logo

    Committed to making a community of safety, solidarity and support for all LGBTQIA+ teammates, Iridescence is building coalitions, dismantling systems of oppression, and raising awareness of the intersectional discrimination faced by the members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

    It takes a village. This growing group is creating a supportive community where On team members can share their parenting experiences, as well as lean on and learn from each other.

  • A place for connection, celebration, and education, On Vey exists to bring On’s Jewish community together regardless of background, denomination, or level of practice. On Vey keeps it simple: "Come as you are and stay for the bagels."

  • This group is a space for veterans to connect as a larger community, sharing individual experiences to feel seen and heard through appreciation and celebration.

  • API Connext is dedicated to uniting On’s Asian and Pacific Islander (API) teammates, providing space to share their diverse API experiences and advocate for increased representation of API members while fostering cross-organizational allies.
