Microsoft has recently been named by Diversity Edge magazine as the #1 place to work for graduates - and we couldn't be prouder! We're up from being #2 last year, partially due to the efforts of our GM of Diversity & Inclusion, Gwen Houston, who was featured on the cover with an accompanying interview in their second quarter issue.

The selection process for inclusion on this list included responses to the Diversity Edge Best Companies Survey and input from various university career centers across the country. The survey measured each company on five key areas: Diversity Recruiting Policies, Leadership Development Initiatives, Training Programs, Opportunity for Mentorship, and Activeness of Employee Affinity Groups. The survey also considers the company’s overall diversity initiative.
