Diversity at Google: A Place to be You
At Google, we don’t just accept difference – we thrive on it. We celebrate it. And we support it, for the benefit of our employees, our users, our culture and students interested in the technology industry. Google is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and is an affirmative action employer.
Googlers come from all over the world, from every background and bring unique experiences and perspectives to their work at Google.
Everywhere Google operates, we are thinking about how to best support diversity and inclusion in a way that is both locally relevant and globally impactful.
At Facebook, we value diversity on an individual level and the impact that every person can have. We are dedicated to creating an environment where people can be their authentic selves and share their own diverse backgrounds, experiences, perspectives and ideas.
IBM has a long history of commitment to Diversity and has consistently taken the lead on Diversity policies long before it was required by law. It began in the mid-20th century, grounded in Equal Opportunity legislation and compliance (Diversity 1.0). We moved forward to Diversity 2.0 in the 1990s with a focus on eliminating barriers, and understanding regional constituencies and differences between the constituencies. As our demographics changed, we adapted our workplace to be more flexible and began our focus on work-life integration. In addition, over the past 5 years, we've introduced IBM's Values, which links to our diversity work.
This strong foundation brings us to where we are today — Diversity 3.0. This is the point where we can take best advantage of our differences — for innovation. Our diversity is a competitive advantage and consciously building diverse teams helps us drive the best results for our clients
