Diversity and Inclusion Strategy

From MozillaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Mozilla is committed to diversity and inclusion among its staff and volunteers. The Mozilla Project welcomes and encourages participation by everyone. It doesn’t matter how you identify yourself or how others perceive you: we welcome you. We are a proudly non-profit organization driven by a culture of openness and collaboration. It’s a value we hold strong and it’s how we work together, day in and day out. Our diversity and inclusion strategy is a business level strategy, not a single program or project. It is not a once and done, it is how we operate.

Long Term Vision

To Create a truly open and inclusive Mozilla where a diversity of contributors can thrive and grow to their full potential.

Strategic Investments and Measures

D&I Investments.png

Based on the findings we have developed from research done in 2015-16, we have invested in 3 priority areas in the first two years: Culture, Hiring and Retention. We know that systemic, comprehensive change is a very long-term investment. Starting with these data-driven priorities will address critical issues our employees are experiencing today and move us in the right direction toward greater representation at all levels and roles for women, minorities and people who are diverse in many other ways over time.

Community Participation Guidelines Revision (May 2017)
