Diversity at Google
At Google, we don’t just accept difference – we thrive on it. We celebrate it. And we support it, for the benefit of our employees, our users, our culture and students interested in the technology industry.
The Black Googler Network (BGN) is an employee resource group whose mission is to attract, recruit, retain and develop Black talent at Google. Since its establishment, BGN has been actively involved in supporting diversity at Google and in the communities in which we operate.
Google’s support for the Black professional community also includes partnerships with local and national non-profit organizations like the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and the National Society Black Engineers (NBSE), as well as educational organizations like the LEAD Program in Business and Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT). Through these partnerships Google provides financial and in-kind donations to support the work of these organizations.
When we encourage Googlers to express themselves, we really mean it. In fact, we count on it. At Google, being yourself is a job requirement. Intellectual curiosity and diverse perspectives drive our policies, our work environment, our perks and our profits. It's the amazing diversity of Googlers that allows us to do extraordinary things.
