Diversity

Respect. Grow. Innovate.

Our vision is to continue a culture of inclusion that embraces the strength a diverse workforce provides to SanDisk, and that respects and values each employee’s uniqueness.

Attracting the best

There’s no debating that the most innovative solutions are born from a diverse set of perspectives. Our talent strategy integrates diversity outreach through every step of the candidate experience. We believe that diversity is a two-way conversation between each candidate and SanDisk. Our employees actively participate in speaking engagements and conferences around the world including Society of Women Engineers, National Society of Black Engineers, Anita Borg Institute and DirectEmployers Association, to name a few. We continue to look for opportunities to expand our partnerships to attract the best talent to join our team. Not only is our outreach important, our managers and recruiting teams take conscious measures to ensure our hiring and interviewing practices enable us to hire the best talent from a diverse pool of candidates.

developing & Advancing careers

Much more than just getting the best talent in the door – it’s also about providing stimulating work, enabling employees to own their professional development, and providing career advancement opportunities. Our employees worldwide are exposed to various programs and initiatives including our Unconscious Bias trainings for managers and employees and our worldwide Women’s Innovation Network (WIN). Continuing to invest in the development of our employees is a company priority, and we are excited to build upon the great success we’ve been able to achieve so far.

Stimulating the community

We are committed to nurturing and growing diversity sources. Since 2003, we have been working with schools and community groups in K-12 grades with a particular focus on improving education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) for underrepresented groups. SanDisk is also a founding partner of US2020, an organization that focuses on increasing access to STEM careers for girls, underrepresented minorities, and low-income children.

Diversity founders

Engaging our employees

Being a diverse company provides us the benefits of unique visions, experiences, and approaches that nourish our value of innovation. Since our founding by three immigrants from China, Israel and India, we have celebrated and embraced our diversity. Our success story has proven how diversity can change the world. To be truly effective in this ongoing mission, we consistently measure the success and employee engagement of our diversity programs, processes, policies and practices, taking stock of whether we are moving the needle in the right direction.

Building the future

Our diversity has been fundamental in shaping who we are and the successes that we have achieved. We believe increasing diversity will not only offer more opportunities to a wider range of individuals, but will ultimately bring a wider pool of perspectives, ideas, and talents to our team as well, which will drive our future success. With a continuing focus on diversity, we are building the future for our community, our employees, and for SanDisk.
