Letter from our CEO

At Microsoft, our mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. We also care deeply about how we achieve that mission and our lasting impact on the world and the communities where we operate. In this year’s annual letter to shareholders, I devoted my closing thoughts to the important role technology can play in spreading economic opportunity more evenly around the world. I believe we must continue to dedicate ourselves to the challenges humankind faces, the role technology can play, and the unique contributions Microsoft can make.
