Apple is a place where extraordinary people gather to do their best work. Our community is made up of every kind of individual: artists and designers, engineers and scientists, thinkers and doers. Together, we create things and experiences people once couldn’t have imagined — and now can’t imagine living without.
We rely on our employees’ diverse backgrounds and perspectives to spark innovation. That’s why we hire inclusively, and why we do more than simply believe in pay equity — we’ve actually achieved 100 percent pay equity for women and underrepresented minorities in every country where we operate. And today, 45 percent of our leaders under 30 are women. We also choose partners who make diversity a priority, creating opportunities for the next generation. Some of our STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) partners include AnitaB.org (Grace Hopper Celebration), Girls Who Code, National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT), TECHNOLOchicas, Rewriting the Code, and Society of Women Engineers, just to name a few.
We also want to encourage employees to share their insights, knowledge, and cultures with each other. Diversity Network Associations (DNAs) do just that. Today more than 25,000 Apple employees belong to these employee groups, which represent different ethnicities, religions, orientations, and genders, as well as Veterans. For instance, the Women@Apple DNA is committed to fostering a community that attracts, empowers, and develops women at Apple. By engaging with others and learning from one another, we’re better positioned to do our life’s best work.
We’re a diverse collection of thinkers and doers, continually reimagining what’s possible to help us all do what we love in new ways. The people who work here have reinvented entire industries with the Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, as well as with services, including iTunes, the App Store, Apple Music, and Apple Pay. And the same passion for innovation that goes into our products also applies to our practices — strengthening our commitment to leave the world better than we found it.
Everyone here is an innovator, or an innovator-to-be, no matter what your team or your role. So bring your passion, courage, and original thinking and get ready to share it, because every new product, service, or feature we invent is the result of people working together to make each others’ ideas stronger. Innovation at this level depends on people who represent the variety of the human experience and inspire us with their own fresh perspectives. Together, we’ll do amazing work that can make a difference in people’s lives. Including your own.
