Apple Inc. is an American multinational technology company headquartered in Cupertino, California, that designs, develops, and sells consumer electronics, computer software, and online services. It is considered one of the Big Four technology companies, along with Amazon, Google, and Facebook. At Apple, we’re not all the same. And that’s our greatest strength. We draw on the differences in who we are, what we’ve experienced, and how we think. Because to create products that serve everyone, we believe in including everyone. Apple is a multigenerational company with employees from 18 to 87. We support the development of all our employees throughout their Apple journey, and we’re proud that so many of our people choose to remain at Apple for a long time.
We’re proud to hire and support U.S. veterans. Through their experiences, they bring leadership, technical skills, and a spirit of collaboration to Apple. And we advocate on behalf of LGBTQ+ people because we believe that LGBTQ+ rights are human rights. For more than 30 years, Apple employees have found community and connection in Apple’s Diversity Network Associations, employee-led groups that foster a culture of belonging through education, leadership programs, and networking. Today over 25,000 Apple employees belong to groups like [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], and [email protected], and a range of faith-based groups.
Employees under 30 represent a third of our total workforce. They are our most diverse and fastest-growing population. Today, 45 percent of leaders under 30 are women, and 17 percent are underrepresented minorities. And we’re deeply committed to ensuring that each generation of leaders is more representative than the last.
Overall representation of women continues to increase at Apple globally. Our greatest progress is seen within the under-30 and new-hire populations. As part of Apple’s commitment to achieving pay equity globally, we’ve also stopped asking candidates about their salary history. And in 2019, we received a top ranking for pay equity by Arjuna Capital’s Gender Pay Scorecard in the technology industry.
