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.
We start with our leaders. Our Board of Directors continues to be among the most diverse of any company in technology today, with women and ethnic minorities holding five of our 11 board positions.
At Microsoft, our diverse backgrounds are helping build better technology. We share stories of how our technology developments are changing our future and empowering us all.
More than 70,000 employees have completed our Unconscious Bias training course, which we've made publicly available in seven different languages as part of our efforts to share best practices with the industry.
Our flexible work arrangements, programs, and tools help us retain top talent and offer employees greater work life balance. These include access to extensive resources and referral services, and generous maternity and paternity leave policies.
