Diversity and inclusion
We believe in the transformative power of engaging many different perspectives.
Different perspectives help us all to achieve more
Our mission is deeply inclusive: empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. Each of us—no matter what level, role or function—plays an active role in helping us innovate for inclusion so that everyone can bring all of who they are and do their best work.
Our communities inspire our progress
We strive to create an environment that brings the power of diversity to life—where people with different backgrounds and experiences thrive in both their professional and personal lives.

We globally invest in developing the next tech industry leaders. And we pursue candidates of diverse backgrounds to help us do our best work yet.
Inclusive thinking drives our innovation
We design for all human experiences and needs. So, we strive to gather, listen to, and include as many perspectives as possible, with the goal of discovering how to bring out the best in each other, and everyone who uses what we create.
