Creating the right environments, programs and policies can support women in pursuing their dreams and building tools that change the world.
Attracting Outstanding Women
Our goal is to build tools that help people change the world, and we're more likely to succeed if Googlers reflect the diversity of our users. We've got great women at Google, and we want more. We're always hiring outstanding women who want to do cool things that matter for the world. Join us.
Women and men at Google are promoted at the same rates, but when we found that technical women were waiting too long to nominate themselves for promotions, we told them so -- and they promptly started claiming the roles they'd earned.
This year, Laszlo Block, our Head of HR shared, at the Women in the Economy Conference, how men and women approach promotions differently. Hear from him.
In the early days of Google, a few women engineers started a mailing list so they could connect with one another.
Today, we know that providing women with better opportunities to connect with one another can help build community and support career growth and development. Google Women in Engineering and Women@Google are two of our most active employee groups, hosting summits, providing courses and offering mentorship to develop and support women.
Helping Working Moms
We believe in removing barriers so Googlers can focus on the things (and people) they love. That's why new parents get time off (at full pay and benefits) along with some extra spending money to help them welcome their new bundles of joy.
