U.S. Public Policy Activities

Western Digital participates in legislative, regulatory, and public policy affairs as deemed by management and the Board of Directors to be in the best interests of the Company without regard for the private political preferences of executives. The Board of Directors' Governance Committee, which consists solely of independent directors, reviews and approves on at least an annual basis the Company's political and lobbying strategy, activities and expenditures, including payments to trade associations, and the policies and procedures regarding the foregoing. The Company's Government Affairs function directs all political activity on the federal, state, and local level, in compliance with the Western Digital U.S. Political Activities Policy, where applicable.

The Company does not have or support a political action committee. The Company also does not make independent political expenditures using corporate funds or resources, nor do we make payments to trade and other industry associations to be used specifically for political purposes. Prior approval by the Governance Committee is required to use corporate funds or resources for donations to local, state, or national elections, whether to candidates, political parties, non-candidate organizations, Section 501(c)(4) organizations, Section 527 organizations, or local or state ballot measures. The Governance Committee has approved the use of corporate funds or resources for donations to local, state, or national elections for the following: None, as of February 29, 2024. This information will be updated if/when any such spending occurs or at least every 6 months. Should such spending be approved and incurred, this website will be updated accordingly with specific policy positions that form the basis of the spending. Information regarding Western Digital's trade and industry association memberships can be found here: 2021 Trade Associations and 2022 Trade Associations.
