Vice President and Head of Legal, Glassdoor, Inc. 

Joe Freeman is Vice President and Head of Legal at Glassdoor. In this capacity, Joe leads Glassdoor’s efforts to protect and defend the anonymous free speech rights of its users and advocates globally for empowering workers to be able to speak candidly and authentically about their workplace experiences without fear of intimidation or retaliation. He joined the company in 2018, following tenures at leading U.S. law firms and several corporate in-house roles.   

In 2020, Glassdoor publicly shared its vision to bring radical transparency to workplaces everywhere, which included developing a workforce that is diverse, inclusive and reflective of the communities in which it operates. Currently, approximately 30% of Glassdoor’s new hires are among underrepresented groups, as the company continues to grow its audience of more than 54 million job seekers each month. 

In order to bring even more transparency to inequities in the workplace, Glassdoor has also introduced new product features displaying employee sentiment ratings and pay data by race/ethnicity, gender identity and more, as well as enabling employees to rate how satisfied they are with D&I at their current or former company. 

In addition, Glassdoor’s in-house economics team conducts an annual pay equity analysis on Glassdoor’s own employee compensation, as part of its continued effort to ensure that company pay practices are equitable. The tool kit for this analysis, which is designed to identify potentially inequitable pay practices across gender and race/ethnicity, is offered to others free of charge with the goal of empowering others to guard against inequitable pay practices.
