38% of consumers willing to pay 7% more for Strava Subscription
In a simulation test, 38% of participants were willing to pay 59 EUR/ mo for a Strava subscription when an Inclusive Workplace badge was displayed on the checkout page, as compared to paying 55 EUR/mo without the badge. This represents a strong interest in supporting an inclusive workplace, even if the price were 7% higher.

MORE RESEARCH NEEDED
This is promising research, but broader scale research is needed to show a statistically significant increase in buying behavior.
We encourage Strava to run an AB test on their checkout page to investigate a potential revenue driver, and we encourage Strava to get in touch with Equalicert to assist with Diversity and inclusion tools.
