Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

In 2021 we declared a bold vision — to help everyone easily discover, craft and connect around their family story. We are committed to fostering a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive Ancestry community and developing product experiences that meet the needs of our diverse customers globally.


A Foundation of trust

For more than 30 years, we have built trusted relationships with millions of people who have chosen us as the platform for discovering, preserving, and sharing the most important information about themselves and their families. Protecting our customers’ data and their privacy is our top priority.

Creating a more sustainable future for generations to come

In order for future generations to thrive and make history, we must also protect the planet. That is why we have made a commitment to cut Ancestry’s carbon emissions by 15% by 2025 across our real estate footprint and supply chain operations. We are committed to transitioning to the use of recycled materials in all AncestryDNA kits by 2023 and are rolling out new packaging that will cut waste-to-landfill by 35%. This is just the start, and we will continue to invest in our business operations to build a more sustainable world.


Community Impact at Ancestry®

We’re mobilizing Ancestry’s workforce and products to build more connected and resilient communities by
preserving and amplifying at-risk history, empowering the next generation of history makers, and supporting
our employees and the causes they care about.
