Diversity, Equity and
Inclusion at
Rent the Runway

Fashion should be for everyone, and so should our workplace. Rent the Runway was founded to disrupt one of the most exclusionary industries in the world because we believe fashion can and should be accessible to all.

Challenging the status quo is in our DNA.


That’s why we are committed to nurturing a culture of change where we welcome and amplify diverse voices from all backgrounds, perspectives and walks of life. 
When everyone feels comfortable bringing their whole and authentic selves to Rent the Runway, that’s when our business thrives and so do the people around us. It’s our differences that generate healthy debates, push us to continuously grow, and inspire our commitment to do better in the world.

It is in this space that we’ll create a better future for fashion that is available to everyone, whether you’re wearing it, designing it or architecting the business behind it.

As a business founded by and for women, DEI has always been and will continue to be a priority for our organization. We are committed to building a clear and sustained long-term strategy to fight systemic inequities in order to make Rent the Runway, and the wider fashion community, more diverse and inclusive.

We’re proud of the progress we’ve made across our four key areas of focus — Representation, Belonging, Behaviors and Accountability — but we know there’s always more work to do. We are in it for the long haul.
