Connecting People to Opportunity
At Equinix, we are about building connections. Just as we empower our customers to connect to everything and everyone that matters to them, we are connecting our employees and communities to the best opportunities the digital world has to offer. We are investing in the employee experience with a focus on attracting, inspiring and developing a diverse global workforce. We are also connecting the communities we inhabit to the advantages of a digital world and finding ways to be a good neighbor by recognizing that our business can inspire opportunities in the communities we serve.
Equinix aspires to be a place where everyone can say “I’m safe, I belong, I matter.” We are on a journey to embed diversity, inclusion and belonging in all our business activities. We believe that is important for us to measure and monitor these commitments to identify where bias and barriers may exist—and take actions for improvement.
