Lisa Lee is the VP of Global Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging at DoorDash. She joins DoorDash from Squarespace, where she led the creation of its first diversity and inclusion strategy. Before Squarespace, Lisa served as Pandora Media’s first Director of Diversity and Inclusion Strategies, where she led Diversity and Inclusion, Employee Experience and Marketing, Giving, and University/EDU programs.
During her tenure, she built and executed Pandora’s overarching diversity strategy. Balking the norm, Lisa led the company to publish its workforce demographic data as one of the first ten publicly-traded tech companies to do so, and just three years later, was one of the few companies to publicly announce measurable diversity goals.
Numbers aside, Lisa architected a winning employee culture that celebrates diversity and inclusion at its core, and it reflects outwardly in Pandora’s business strategy. Pandora’s employee resource groups, known fondly as Pandora Communities, flourished and grew to become one of the most powerful employee channels that advocates for an equitable workforce, and and they continue to play a key role in differentiating Pandora from its peers. Pandora’s diverse and inclusive culture has also been ranked as one of the top themes by employees when asked “What do you love about Pandora’s culture and what are we doing well?”
Prior to joining Pandora, Lisa was at Facebook where she led initiatives in User Operations, Product Operations, and Diversity Programs. She served as the publisher of Hyphen magazine, an award-winning publication about Asian American arts, culture, and politics, co-founded Thick Dumpling Skin, a positive body image community for the Asian American community. Most recently, she co-launched The Margin, making space for people of color at conferences around the world.
