Diversity Badge on Upwork

Diversity Badge on Upwork is a way to get noticed by clients who value a diversity of perspectives and points of view. Freelancers who choose to add Diversity Badge to their profile will also be seen by clients with that badge. Clients can also choose to search for Diversity-Certified talent. This badge is for U.S. profiles, and it can be used by freelancers and also agencies.

Categories that are eligible for this certification are:
