Respect and Value Uniqueness

Respect and value uniqueness and diversity of thought. We’re talking everyone, everywhere, at all times, regardless of background, level or circumstance. Ideas are richer and execution is stronger when everyone feels included.

PayPal is committed to making a positive difference in the world. Our ability to deliver on our mission of democratizing financial services and capabilities starts from the inside; by building a global team of employees that reflects the communities where we work and live, and the diversity of the customers we serve. That’s why Inclusion is a core value and defines who we are and everything we do. For PayPal, bringing this value to life means building an ever more inclusive company culture, built on respect for individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, and the self-expression of our colleagues.

─Dan Schulman, PayPal President and CEO


Inclusion is a critical part of not only our company culture, but also the way that we approach our customers.  As a company, our mission is to break down walls and barriers that have held certain populations back from accessing critical financial tools and instruments.  You have learned a lot about our mission, vision and values. Now, we are going to make you LIVE our mission, vision and values.  Because our hope is that when you walk out of this Embark class and into your new roles, that this experience we are about to embark upon will leave such a lasting impact that it will transform the way in which you approach your job.

Our goal is to actually make you walk in the shoes of our customers that are underserved and underbanked.  You will be given a profile based on a real customer that we have interviewed.  As that customer, you will be given a set of challenges/activities, that you must accomplish.  However, you must accomplish them as someone who does not have access to the traditional financial tools that most of us take for granted
