What is diversity, inclusion, and belonging?

Celebrating differences, embracing new solutions

To our NetApp® team, “walking the talk" means we must hold ourselves accountable in our work toward greater demographic and cognitive diversity. Embracing a culture of diversity requires that we create opportunities for inclusion, diversity, and belonging (DI&B) every day. And the culture of inclusion at NetApp fosters a strong community that’s empowered to innovate.

Our diversity, inclusion, and belonging goals are a continuous process of self-reflection and growth, to build belonging within our culture, values and business practices.

We believe that the strongest and most creative teams have the best talent, are unified in purpose, and diverse in thought and background representing the customers and communities we serve.
