Making GitHub a place where everyone belongs
We are dedicated to building a community and team that reflects the world we live in and pushes the boundaries of software innovation.
The power of people
We believe in the transformative power of engaging different perspectives. That's why we hire talented people from around the world and encourage building strong networks that cross backgrounds, time zones, and accents. We are built to be truly global.
We hold ourselves accountable to build an engaging experience by following the diversity, inclusion, and belonging (DI&B) initiatives, which are informed by Hubbers and our Inclusion Advisory Council.Explore our Diversity Report
We require unconscious bias, privilege, and allyship training for all employees. This empowers everyone to develop awareness, exercise curiosity, and demonstrate courage.
We set and track ambitious goals for women, racial and ethnic minorities, hiring, retention, and other diversity metrics. All our hires also go through a DI&B conversation during the interview process.
We survey all Hubbers about the inclusive environment at GitHub. Additionally, our annual Diversity Report shares our progress in diversity efforts, like representation in leadership.
Our Communities of Belonging
We are inspired by the whimsical culture at GitHub.
