Maximizing the contribution of every individual allows us to infuse diverse thought as a natural part of the way we innovate.
In over 20 years of committed diversity and inclusion efforts, we've learned that diversity is not a finite goal; it is a journey that requires constant self-assessment and recommitment.
Our employees are a bridge to our customers. So it's important that they feel encouraged to contribute their unique insight and skills to help solve some of the most complex technology challenges. We support seven major employee groups and over 40 employee networks that help us build a supportive community across Microsoft.
Our approach to building the communities around us is holistic in who we reach, how we reach them, and how far we reach. We increasingly do business with minority- and women-owned companies. We globally invest in the development of the next tech industry leaders. And we pursue diverse candidates who are ready to help us do our best work yet.
