We want to inspire people to take action to change the world—and that includes our employees. Our employee programs enable you to get connected and get involved, both in and out of the office.
How our employees get involved
Employee resource groups (ERGs) are foundation-supported, employee-run internal communities that are crucial to sparking change in our organization’s culture and advancing our diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.
We encourage and empower our employees to take action in the communities where they live and work. We offer generous 3:1 charitable donation matching and encourage our employees to participate in or lead volunteer activities and use their voice to support the organizations and causes they care about.
Our employees become lifetime members of the Gates Foundation. Our alumni go on to do amazing things, often continuing to work on the causes we care about. By staying connected in a meaningful way, they go farther together to make a difference in the world, tapping into each other’s expertise through networking and special events.
