The Equinix Women Leaders Network (ELWN), founded in 2011, is a global network of 1,700 women pursuing growth, visibility and opportunities to increase business impact. EWLN focuses on three pillars:
The Equinix Employee Connection Network celebrates the diversity within our workforce by encouraging the formation of Equinix Employee Connection Networks with common interests, cultures, or backgrounds. Such networks play an important role in articulating, promoting, and supporting the needs and goals of these communities, including building awareness across all of Equinix. Desiring to promote interconnection across its employees, Equinix supports the formalization of those networks that promote its business objectives and values and exhibit the intent to form bonds across the company globally.
Founded in 2019 and still nascent, Equinix PrideConnect is a global, grassroots network of 200+ members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies cultivating supportive, positive space for dialogue, learning and community impact. Our goal is to bring people together to connect and learn from each other.
all employees are encouraged to network and create sponsorships across teams for personal growth and development. The resource groups often have activities to foster this engagement.
