Diversity and Inclusion

Microsoft is hiring and developing the best, most globally diverse talent. Employees that represent the markets we serve give us greater consumer insight, creativity, and real-time market innovation. As Microsoft establishes itself as the world’s technology leader, we’ll need the talents and perspectives of diverse populations to bring about superior results.

We’re taking action

From our leaders to the larger community, Microsoft is dedicated to infusing diversity and inclusion principles into our hiring, our communication, our innovation, and the way we build products and technologies.
