At Microsoft Canada, we believe that diversity enriches our performance and products, the communities in which we live and work, and the lives of our employees. As our workforce evolves to reflect the growing diversity of our global marketplace, our efforts to understand, value and incorporate differences become increasingly important.
The potential of a diverse workforce is unlimited. And our vision is to ensure that the importance of diversity at Microsoft is not just a verbal commitment, but a reality. When you combine powerful minds from all types of backgrounds and lifestyles, you create one thing: unlimited potential. At Microsoft Canada, our diversity inspires us as we continue to expand the possibilities of personal computing and the Internet.
We Value and Support Diverse Ideas
To realize our vision, Microsoft Canada has established a number of initiatives to promote and integrate diversity and inclusion at every level within our organization, and to demonstrate this commitment locally, nationally, and globally. From subsidized Employee Resource Groups to Canadian Women’s Conferences and Professional Development Series to Employee, Manager and Leader training courses. We’ve also created programs dedicated to, among other things, attracting, retaining and developing the careers of a broad range of diverse employee populations at Microsoft. We start out young and even reach out to elementary schools to educate young girls about the power and influence that technology can have in our world so that they can feel inspired to get into the fields of science. Through these types of programs and much more, we feel confident that we are continuing to grow our culture of respect and inclusion at Microsoft Canada.
Microsoft Canada promotes a cooperative and productive work environment by supporting the diversity of its workforce and is committed to providing equal employment opportunity to all qualified employees and applicants. Our commitment to diversity goes beyond recruiting and employing a diverse workforce. It's a vital component of our ongoing mission: to enable people and businesses throughout the world to realize their full potential.
