Yelp launched the Open to All attribute in 2018 in partnership with Open to All, encouraging businesses to make the commitment to creating safe, welcoming, and inclusive spaces for customers, employees, and communities.
Over half a million businesses have since activated the Open to All attribute on their Yelp Business Pages. Alongside adoption of the attribute, consumer demand has followed. The number of U.S. searches on Yelp that contain the phrase “open to all” is up more than five times last year’s levels.
To continue this movement and help businesses create and communicate an inclusive environment for employees and customers, there is a new Open to All toolkit available—especially helpful for smaller businesses who are looking for a way to start the conversation.
Email templates for customer outreach
Digital social media toolkit containing sample posts and graphics
Printable Open to All poster for employee break rooms
Collection of additional organizations that are offering trainings, resources, and more
Businesses that sign the pledge will also have exclusive access to a 60-minute unlearning bias training video—created by Open to All in partnership with Ralph Lauren and designed to be used as a part of your employee onboarding process.
