Demonstrating fairness.

Our journey to pay and opportunity parity.

Our progress.

 

Pay parity

We have achieved global gender pay parity and parity among U.S. underrepresented minority (URM*) employees and non-URM employees. We continue to monitor our progress to ensure that we are creating a culture that fairly rewards and recognizes the contributions of all employees.

At pay parity between men and women globally.

At pay parity between U.S. URM* and non-URM employees.

Data updated September 2020

* Underrepresented minorities (URM) are U.S. employees who identify as Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American, Pacific Islander, and/or two or more races.

Opportunity parity

In February 2019, we coined the term "opportunity parity" to mean fairness in promotions and horizontal movement across demographic groups. Our FY2020 global gender and U.S. URM*/non-URM promotion rates are reflected below. Learn more and review additional opportunity parity data.

Fiscal 2020 promotion rate was 18.6% for women and 17.5% for men.
