At ServiceNow, employee diversity, inclusion and belonging is essential.

Diversity, inclusion and belonging

Diversity, inclusion, and belonging are essential to who we are, how we’ll grow, and how we’ll innovate.

Our Journey
When an employee can push their sleeves up during a meeting without feeling self-conscious about their tattoos, we know we’re a better company.
When a teammate who’s a member of the LGBTQ+ community doesn’t think twice about putting photos of their partner or a Pride flag at their desk, we know we’re a better company.
When a veteran is welcomed with a strong sense of community, we know we’re a better company.
When an employee doesn’t feel defined or limited by their disability, we know we’re a better company.
And when talented prospective employees choose us because of all of the above, then we know we're becoming a great company—a great place to thrive and build a career.
At ServiceNow, creating the future of work for our customers also means creating the future of work for ourselves. That means embracing diversity, inclusion, and belonging as a business imperative, and creating a future where everyone brings their authentic selves to work every day. No employee, not the person with tattoos, the transgender teammate, the vet starting her first private sector job, or the new dad juggling life and career, should ever feel they can’t bring to work every day all of the rich history and context that makes them who they are.
When diversity is celebrated, inclusion valued and everyone belongs, magic happens.
Diversity and inclusion are table stakes. Belonging is the breakthrough. Diverse, inclusive teams where everyone feels like they belong are high performing teams, more innovative, more productive, and more engaged. They create more value. Research proves it, and we believe it.
That’s why we embrace diversity, inclusion, and belonging as core to how we operate, how we learn as an organization, how we recruit talent and develop our people, and how we create culture. We are early in our journey. But this document, representing our second diversity, inclusion, and belonging report, shows how quickly progress can be made when you focus on what matters. For example, we drove a 5% increase in women in leadership roles over the past year.
Beyond the numbers are more profound changes underway across ServiceNow. Courageous conversations that reveal the unseen diversity we each bring to work every day. Moments of belonging that build community and create stronger teams. A growth mindset of continuous learning. And policies and practices that reinforce our values and beliefs.
That’s our journey, and we're glad you've chosen to be a part of it.
