We believe breakthrough innovations happen when teams are inclusive and diverse. To serve every athlete individually and completely, across hundreds of countries where we do business, we need teams that reflect the diversity of our consumers and a culture of inclusivity that respects the communities in which we live and work. We know the best ideas often come from unexpected places and our individual differences bring new perspectives to the table. This drives us to encourage every person to reach their full potential, whether it’s on the track, at work or at home. We strive to help people be active and engaged, fully participating in the world around them. What’s good for our consumers is also good for our employees and our communities.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
At Nike, we believe in the inspirational power of sport to break down barriers, overcome differences and bring people together. To serve every athlete across the hundreds of countries where we do business we need teams that truly reflect the diversity of our consumers. We’re committed to fostering a culture of inclusivity and an environment of empowerment and respect — a place where everyone can show up fully as themselves and do their best work every day. We embrace different perspectives because we know everyone brings unique experiences and ideas to the team. No matter where we come from, a love of sport unites us.
Take a look at our ongoing commitment to Diversity & Inclusion.
At Nike, purpose moves us.
Sustainability: If there is no planet, there is no sport. This understanding drives our North Star for sustainability — a future where all athletes have access to safe places to play and train, enjoy sport and realize their full potential. Our purpose is to unite the world through sport to create a healthy planet, active communities and an equal playing field for all.
Environment: At Nike we believe that how we make our products is as important as what we make, and we believe world-class manufacturing begins with respect for people and the environment. We develop products with sustainability in mind — and innovate new materials — because we’re dedicated to finding ways to help solve today’s problems for a better tomorrow. We work with suppliers who share our commitment to making products responsibly and sustainably.
Community: Nike works with community partners on programming, engages our employees and makes investments around the world to create lasting change. We invest a minimum of 1.5% pre-tax income each year to drive positive impact in our communities and level the playing field for all. We also team up with our employees around the world to supercharge their charitable donations to nonprofits and schools through our Employee Matching Gifts program
