Inclusive, diverse, open. 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.
- What progress has Apple made in the hiring of underrepresented minorities?
Apple is making consistent progress in hiring underrepresented minorities. For the past five years, we’ve continued to hire more women and underrepresented minorities every year. This is driving our progress over time. As we bring in new team members and support their growth at Apple, we’re highly encouraged that our workforce will become more representative at all levels of the company. 53% of new hires in the U.S. are from historically underrepresented groups in tech.
Overall representation of women continues to increase at Apple globally. Our greatest progress is seen within the under-30 (38%) and new-hire (36%) populations.
We know that an inclusive and diverse workforce drives innovation and makes Apple stronger. That’s why we’re committed to hiring more diverse talent for jobs at all levels, attracting candidates from more diverse pipelines, leveraging technology to prevent bias, and driving development efforts to increase representation in leadership across the company.

Apple is championing equal pay around the globe. We’ve achieved pay equity in every country where we operate — women earn the same as men when performing similar work. In the United States, underrepresented minorities earn one dollar for every dollar white employees earn. Every year, we examine the compensation employees receive and make adjustments to ensure that we maintain pay equity.
As part of our 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.

Apple is committed to providing a workplace free of sexual harassment, as well as harassment based on any protected characteristics such as gender, race, ethnic group, disability, or religion. Apple will not tolerate harassment of employees or non-employees with whom we have a business, service, or professional relationship. Apple has many avenues through which employees and non-employees can report harassment or discrimination concerns, including an external hotline where anonymous concerns can be raised. Once reported, Apple has a team dedicated to promptly investigating and addressing these issues. Additionally, Apple will not retaliate or tolerate retaliation against anyone for filing a complaint or participating in the investigation of a complaint. Anyone who is found to have violated this policy may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.
