Seagate Reports on Progress Towards Global Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Objectives

Seagate Technology Holdings plc, a world leader in data storage infrastructure solutions, shared the company’s fourth annual Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Report titled “Crafting an Inclusive Datasphere,” covering fiscal year 2022.

The report highlights Seagate’s continued commitment to its value of inclusion by transparently sharing the company’s results in the areas of representation, inclusion, social impact, and equity. Results in these focus areas include:

  • Representation — increased representation of women across all levels of leadership since fiscal year 2020 (31.3% global women in leadership).
  • Inclusion — 27 employee-led resource group chapters in six countries with more than 3,600 participants worldwide.
  • Social — strengthening interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education for more than two decades through community competitions.
  • Equity — continued equitable and inclusive hiring practices resulting in 435 global interns onboarded including diverse students from the National Society of Black Engineers and recognition by the Thailand government as an inclusive employer for people with disabilities.

With nearly 40,000 employees in fiscal year 2022 spanning over 50 locations across the globe and countless cultures, diversity underpins Seagate’s success. Innovation thrives in a culture that embraces different voices, where all employees contribute to the company’s success and are empowered to express themselves authentically. Building this culture takes continual effort and willingness to be transparent about progress.

“As a multinational company, we’ve found that the more we embrace DEI, the better we understand the many people we serve and support,” says Dave Mosley, Seagate’s chief executive officer. “This fuels our innovation to have an even greater impact on the world – and makes contributing to Seagate’s success meaningful and fulfilling for all of us.”

“At Seagate, our leaders, managers, and employees are dedicated to having a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization. Every day, they bring to life our people strategy, which is: ‘Mission First, People Always,’” said Heather Howell, Seagate’s director of diversity, equity and inclusion. “For me, their commitment to make Seagate a place where everyone feels supported to achieve their best, and valued for the contributions they make, creates a truly inspiring and fulfilling place to work.”
