Airbnb and SEWA: Empowerment through partnership
The Self Employed Women’s Association (SEWA) was formed in 1972 to help disadvantaged women in rural India find new income opportunities. Since 2016, Airbnb has partnered with SEWA to help expand livelihood opportunities for women and empower them through home sharing.
Introducing the Living Wage Pledge
We’re thrilled to announce that we are launching the Living Wage Pledge, which hosts can take to commit to paying the people who clean their listing a living wage, or the minimum income necessary for individuals to meet their basic needs.
Study: Airbnb’s reputational system builds trust & overcomes biases
Here at Airbnb, our carefully crafted review and rating system is central to our entire community. Our founders intentionally designed it for trust from day one, so that our hosts and guests can only review each other until after a reservation is complete—meaning you can be confident that the feedback you’re seeing is informed, unbiased, and real.
