Diversity statement from 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, and our culture.

Having Googlers with a diversity of perspectives, ideas, and cultures leads to the creation of better products and services. By encouraging people to be themselves and supporting them in their interests and passions, we’re able to do cool things that matter.
