Diversity at Microsoft

Please provide further information on diversity with respect to women, ethnic minorities and LGBT. Please comment on issues such as recruitment, retention, promotion, child care, maternity leave, etc.

Seems very good and I am glad my immediate team push for women in tech, Indigenous and LGBT workers.

Microsoft's dedication to diversity is very present. There are lots of women, ethnic minorities, LGBT and peoples with disabilities in the company. Microsoft recognises that unless the workforce is diverse, we will not be delivering products/solutions that are diverse and fit everyone's needs.
