Diversity and Inclusion


At Western Digital, we thrive on the power and potential of diversity. We believe the most effective way to way to embrace the diversity of our customers and communities around the world is to mirror them from within. But that’s not enough. We work hard to foster an inclusive environment, where every individual feels a genuine sense of belonging, respect, and contribution.
