Our belief on Diversity and Inclusion: Diversity is Appealing

We love that we’re all different; however, we have to admit that not all have been treated equally in the past. Bananatag promises that however you identify you will always have equal access and opportunity to succeed.

Our belief on Equity: Pay Parity

We believe in gender pay parity. We’ve taken a public pledge and worked to eradicate gender pay gaps (and gaps in other areas of diversity). We’re committed to bi-annual reviews and making corrections if we fall off track. Our aim is always a $1 to $1 ratio among all Bananas.

We’re certain that at Bananatag you’ll be able to have impact and create an inspiring career.
