Google is committed to continuing to make diversity, equity, and inclusion part of everything we do—from how we build our products to how we build our workforce.
Since we started sharing our data in 2014, we've seen large gains for women in tech globally 1 and modest, steady gains in representation for communities that we focused on in the U.S. Over the last year we’ve seen progress in a number of areas. For the second year in a row, we continued to increase representation for women globally and increase representation of women in leadership roles globally at Google, growing 0.6 ppts, reaching 26.7%. We offer targeted career development programs, which provide coaching, community-building, mentorship, and advocacy to help women in leadership roles foster relationships with senior leaders and advance their careers.
Google’s mission is to organize the world‘s information and make it universally accessible and useful. Since our founding by two students in 1998, Google has grown from offering search in a single language to dozens of products and services in scores of languages, and we now have thousands of employees and offices around the world. A lot has changed since the first Google search engine appeared. But some things haven’t changed: our dedication to our users and our belief in the possibilities of the Internet itself.
