Diversity, Equality & Inclusion

At Micron, our people are our most important resource and a critical driver of our competitive advantage. We believe our best innovation springs from our team members' diverse experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds. We are passionate about creating a diverse and inclusive environment, representative of our communities and the customers we serve.

 

 

Our Diverse Team

Micron depends on our talented and inclusive
workforce in 18 different countries. We firmly
believe that a diverse workforce develops diverse
solutions that lead to more breakthroughs and
accelerate innovation.

 

 

Welcome to Micron’s second annual Diversity, Equality and Inclusion report. I am personally passionate about fostering greater diversity within our company, as is our board. Ideas are the foundation of our business, and the best ideas only emerge when you create an atmosphere where all voices can be heard. We aim to create an environment where every team member can fully contribute to the innovation that fuels our business success. This report is a measure of our progress in creating that culture.

I would like to share a few notable highlights from the past year:

  • In December 2018, Micron participated in the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion’s Day of Understanding alongside hundreds of other Fortune 500 companies. This led to eye-opening conversations about blind spots and unconscious bias. As a result, we have committed to educating all senior leaders on Inclusive Leadership by August 2020.
  • In January 2019, we were honored to be listed as one of Forbes Best Employers for Diversity. The anonymous survey asked 50,000+ participants to rank their organizations on fair and equal treatment of workers across age, gender, ethnicity, disability and sexual orientation.
  • In July 2019, we welcomed Sharawn Connors, our first vice president of Diversity, Equality and Inclusion. Under Sharawn’s leadership, we are deepening our commitment to equality and leveraging the strengths of Micron’s global team. We are striving to ensure that all backgrounds and voices are fairly represented and that all team members have equal opportunity to grow and advance.

As a company and an industry, we know we still have a long way to go. I am proud of the progress we have made this year, however, and look forward to better leveraging the power of our team’s diverse perspectives. I believe Micron can lead our industry and prove how innovative an inclusive culture can be as we strive toward our vision to transform how the world uses information to enrich life.

Go Micron!

Our Data

As we reflect on a year of positive changes, we set our sights even higher in the year ahead. Increased diversity at the top of the company reflects Micron’s commitment and is a step in the right direction. Women now account for 13.5% of senior leaders in the company, and we believe there is more opportunity to improve. The percentage of women in technical and engineering roles increased by 1% overall to reach 20.7%. In FY19 Micron made some progress toward increasing underrepresented races/ethnicities, yet there is more work to be done. For more details, plus data on LGBTQ+, U.S. Veterans and team members with disabilities, read the full report.
