Our approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion
As Google continues to grow, we have a responsibility to scale our diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives to increase pathways to tech in the communities we call home. Here’s how we’re approaching that work.
We are building a robust, diverse talent pool to support our industry’s growth. By providing computer science education from primary school through university we are growing the next generation of Black and Latinx tech leaders through programs like CS First, Code Next, and Tech Exchange. Our residency programs like IT Residency Program, Engineering Residency, and AI Residency, help jumpstart careers in technology at Google and beyond.
Google works hard to attract the best talent and once they are here, we want them to stay. To support this, we build diversity, equity, and inclusion capabilities among all Googlers from managers and leaders, to front line human resources. The Equity Programs Team focuses on ensuring parity in how we source and hire Nooglers as well as in performance reviews, promotions, and retention. Through our Employee Resource Groups, Leadership Councils, and Diversity councils, we foster a sense of belonging throughout the company, even while many of us are working from home.
Responsible growth means looking beyond the demands of our industry, to consider how our work impacts the cities, sites, and countries where we operate. We approach this work by building long-term partnerships with educational institutions, policymakers, and community organizations. Google.org is committed to philanthropy in support of STEM access for underserved communities. Grow With Google’s Digital Coaches provide digital skills training and coaching to help Black and Latinx small businesses grow.
