Microsoft Deutschland

Microsoft is the productivity and platform company for the mobile-first and cloud-first world. We will reinvent productivity to empower every person and every organization on the planet to do more and achieve more.

Microsoft actively seeks to foster greater levels of diversity in our workforce and in our pipeline of future leaders. We are always looking for the best and brightest talent and pride ourselves on our individuality - inviting candidates to come as they are and do what they love. The common thread that attracts us to candidates is their passion for their work and the desire to make an impact in their careers, in the community, and on the world.

Our approach to building the communities around us is holistic in who we reach, how we reach them, and how far we reach. We increasingly do Business with minority- and women-owned companies. We globally invest in the development of the next tech industry leaders. And we pursue diverse candidates who are ready to help us do our best work yet. For example we invest in Employee Resource Groups like women at Microsoft. As one of the largest employee resource groups, we strive to develop and support female employees at Microsoft through opportunities such as global conferences, networking events, and mentoring. We believe that more diverse teams create greater innovations with more diverse approaches, questions and ideas. With this belief in mind, we strive to be a leader in attracting women to careers in high tech. Inside the company, and in partnership with others, Microsoft is involved in a wide range of programs aimed at trying to attract, recruit, retain, and develop women from around the world in the field of computer technology.

We start early in the pipeline by sparking girls’ interest in technology careers. We promote the study of computer science at traditionally female colleges and other universities. We invest in women-focused organizations, seek out women-owned suppliers, and provide support to women once they are employees at Microsoft.

Microsoft Germany has been a member of EWMD for many years and supports the network through different events as well as active contribution by female managers and specialists. On a number of occasions the regional group was invited to the Microsoft office.
