Diversity & Inclusion

Nike is a company of purpose, growth and innovation. As we seek to move the world forward through sport, we believe the success of our teammates drives the success of our business. This is reflected in our ongoing commitment to creating an environment focused on equality, inclusion, empowerment and respect. When our teams feel supported and inspired, they turn that creativity into innovation to serve our athletes globally and deliver against our goals. Nike is at its best when every member of our team feels respected, included, and heard—when everyone can show up as themselves and do their best work every day.

Take a look at our ongoing commitment to Diversity & Inclusion.


Nike’s competitive benefits program provides employees with the opportunity to stay fit, ensure the wellness of their families, and create a positive working environment. We continually invest in the total rewards to help employees achieve greatness, inside and outside of work. Our total rewards is the collection of benefits and programs that recognizes individuality and supports the diverse needs of our workforce. Here are some of the benefits we offer: Health (Medical, Dental & Vision), Financial (401(k) Retirement Savings Plan, Profit Sharing, Employee Stock Purchase Plan), Security (Supplemental Life Insurance, Short/Long-Term Disability) & Work/Life (Flexible Family Leave Policy, Sabbaticals, Tuition Assistance, Product Discounts, Fitness Center Discounts) and much, much more.


We believe breakthrough innovations happen when teams are inclusive and diverse. To serve every athlete individually and completely, across hundreds of countries where we do business, we need teams that reflect the diversity of our consumers and a culture of inclusivity that respects the communities in which we live and work. We know the best ideas often come from unexpected places and our individual differences bring new perspectives to the table. This drives us to encourage every person to reach their full potential, whether it’s on the track, at work or at home. We strive to help people be active and engaged, fully participating in the world around them. What’s good for our consumers is also good for our employees and our communities.
