We nailed it! – Gingerbread House Competition



To get in the holiday spirit we hosted a gingerbread house competition! Members of OUTburst, Yelp’s employee resource group (ERG) for the LGBTQ+ community, challenged members from our other ERGs to get creative and build a gingerbread house using candy from their childhood as decorations. Judges from our executive team had the chance to marvel at the creations that reflected a rich tapestry of candy traditions from our various cultures!

Here’s a little bit more about the Yelp employee resource groups (YERGs) that participated:

OutBurst focuses on highlighting the achievements of the employees of the LGBTQ+ community.
BlackBurst facilitates an authentic space for conversation, support, and shared learning and development for the Black community and its allies.
YAPI (Yelp Asian Pacific Islander) aims to celebrate, educate, include, and promote a strong sense of community among all Asian identities – East, South, Southeast, and Pacific Islander – to grow members as Yelp employees and as individuals.
SomosYelp is a space for Hispanic/Latinx Yelpers to connect, learn, and lift each other up.
