Baker Retailing Center at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and YaleWomen.



Beth is also a global leader in the field of human resources and talent management and Airbnb is incredibly excited that she’s bringing her skills and extensive experience to the Executive Leadership team of Airbnb. With her experience, Beth really could have done almost anything. But she decided to follow her heart, which told her Airbnb just felt like home.



Going forward, Beth will be responsible for overseeing virtually every aspect of an employee’s life at Airbnb, from recruiting the talented people who join their global team and ensuring they can grow in their careers, to maintaining healthy environments in the offices around the world, to curating their many employee benefits and resources. She’ll further the mission by creating a diverse workforce and culture where every employee feels like they belong at Airbnb at every step in their career.



Apart from welcoming Beth, Airbnb also thanked Mark Levy, who for over three years, has been an integral leader in the creation of employee experience at Airbnb. His work, along with the global Employee Experience team to create a successful, inclusive workplace has been recognized by the Human Rights Campaign. He has championed the efforts to make Airbnb one of the best places to work in the world and diligently worked to bring the employees, hosts and guests together.



The authorities of Airbnb informed that Mark will remain with Airbnb and they are thrilled that they will continue to work closely together.



Just like their global community of hosts and guests, the remarkable people who work at Airbnb continue to find new ways to inspire them every day. Their employees make this community possible. So the company wants their careers in Airbnb to be just as exciting and rewarding as the experiences they help create.
