The best thing any company can do for itself is to hire smart people. But it’s also important to think about the composition of your company as a whole. Hiring too homogeneous a group can leave you open to blind spots, with important issues overlooked and valuable opportunities left unidentified. The best defense against this? Hire people from diverse backgrounds and make sure their voices are heard.

We work hard to do this at Google, but know that we aren’t where we want to be, particularly when it comes to women and minorities. It’s a problem you see throughout the working world, and one that’s particularly acute in the tech industry. There’s no shortage of smart, creative people of all different backgrounds out there with big ideas and the ability to become great technologists, and we’d like to help them on their path. That’s why I’m pleased to share that we’re donating all profits from How Google Works to organizations focused on improving access to computer science education for girls and minority youth including +Black Girls Code, +Girls Who Code, and Code 2040.
