Founded in 1975, Microsoft (Nasdaq “MSFT”) is the worldwide leader in software, services, devices and solutions that help people and businesses realize their full potential. 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. At Microsoft, our policies and business practices reflect a commitment to making our planet a better place. This commitment is central to why many of our employees come to work every day, and it impacts the type of products and services we develop. We take seriously our responsibilities to help the world achieve more. And we are committed to meeting our responsibility to address economic, social, and environmental issues in our world today. This site is a living report on our most current policies and practices for advancements in these critical areas.
At Microsoft, we believe that technology is a powerful force for improving people’s lives. But right now, half the world does not have access to the opportunities, capabilities and benefits of technology. For them, the knowledge and opportunity is out of reach. That’s why we’re investing our greatest assets – our technology, people, grants and voice – to advance a more equitable world where the benefits of technology are accessible to everyone. Through our philanthropic investments and partnerships, we are working to create a better future that everyone can share in.
