"At Microsoft unique opinions and perspectives are valued. I love bringing up new ideas that are completely different and when you realize your colleagues across all disciplines are listening and embracing those thoughts it makes it evident you are valued."
— Anja, Principal Program Manager – Azure Global
"Microsoft has learned throughout its lifetime that building a culture where everyone is empowered to do their best work is its most important business object. This inclusive culture is built on a strong sense of belonging and psychological safety. It is a culture that encourages authenticity over covering, unique ideas over group think, and learning from others over being the lone expert. Microsoft’s commitment to building this culture is what allows me to be my most authentic self."
— Ronnie, Principal Director of Engineering, .NET Fundamentals
