Fostering a fair and inclusive Google

We're creating an environment where every Googler can thrive.

Empowering Googlers to address unconscious bias

Every day, we’re inundated with more information than we can consciously process. Research shows that simply raising awareness about unconscious bias can lead to more conscious decision making. We started an internal conversation in 2013 about unconscious bias and we continue to invest in unbiasing trainings. Over 65% of Googlers have participated in these workshops, and all new Googlers and managers are trained in it. Additionally, we’ve shared our unbiasing materials and research on our platform re:Work with Google; now anyone from any industry can create unbiasing trainings for their team.

Providing benefits that serve the diverse needs of our Googlers

We believe in removing barriers so Googlers can focus on the things and people they love, and in providing benefits that serve the unique needs of our Googlers. Some of our most talked-about benefits include our caregiver leave program and our LGBT policies. Find out more about how we tailor our benefits to support the diverse needs of our Googlers.

Ensuring equity in our people processes

Our goal is to create an environment in which every Googler can thrive. We check and recheck our people processes (including promotions, compensation, and more) to ensure fairness and equity in all things that impact Googlers. For example, we took action when we saw that women in tech were less likely to self-nominate for promotions. We’ve also long had gender pay equity in our workforce and we recently shared our approach to compensation with the hope that other organizations will adopt similar fair pay practices.

Encouraging Googlers to celebrate diversity and inclusion

Googlers are passionate about diversity and asked for more ways to make a difference. So we created the Diversity Core program to connect them to high impact diversity projects across Google and in local communities. Googlers can also join one of our 20+ Employee Resource Groups to connect with a network of people who share their values of supporting diversity:
