Being a Force for Good

One of our core values at Canva, “Being a force for good” means we are actively working towards a world that isn’t just good for a small few, but one that’s good for everyone. We believe deeply that bringing together diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression is key for building the best product for our equally diverse community. To achieve this, we need to constantly work towards making Canva the best place to work, for everyone.



Celebrating Uniqueness

We celebrate the uniqueness that every person brings to the team, built upon respect, acceptance and kindness. We know that our success is firmly grounded in the richness of diverse perspectives converging with big, bold ideas. Every person contributes to Canva in their own special way.

A Representative Workforce

We know that building diverse teams helps us to empathise and understand the needs of our users, and create a product that improves their lives. Our users come from all walks of life, from all parts of the world. We aim to have a team that reflects the diversity that exists in the society we live in.



Building Psychological Safety

We are committed to fostering an inclusive workplace where people feel safe to be themselves, are able to do the best work of their lives and fulfil their potential. There are no dumb ideas – just a group of people working together to solve a problem. We’re all on an ongoing journey of learning, helping each other grow and becoming the best we can possibly be.

Community and Awareness

When we bring people together, we create a culture of inclusion and openness. We hope that by building awareness of the importance of diversity and inclusion, and providing a safe place to speak about it, we encourage healthy conversations that create positive, lasting change. We are proud to work together with our community partners that inspire and provide opportunities to those that often need it the most.


Finally, we know that there’s a long road ahead and by no means do we have it all figured out. It’s a constant work in progress but we believe these are worthwhile things to strive for.
