Who we are

In a world that is growing and evolving every day, HP creates technology that makes life better for everyone, everywhere. HP innovation springs from a team of individuals, each collaborating and contributing their own perspectives, knowledge, and experience to advance the way the world works and lives. From our earliest days, we’ve recognized that capturing and drawing from diverse points of view improves our products and services — and our company as a whole.

See what these HP employees say about how their individual viewpoints impact our products, business, and company culture.

Our Current Progress

We’re reinventing the standard for diversity, equity, and inclusion — in how we operate as a company and impact society. Diversity is embedded in all we do, and every HP employee at every level plays a part. By valuing differences — whether race, ethnicity, gender, nationality, ability, military status, religion, generation, sexual orientation, or views — we engage top industry talent to drive our company’s long-term success.

In HP’s Second Annual HBCU Business Challenge, we asked for your ideas… and you rose to the challenge!

As part of our partnership with the National HBCU Business Deans Roundtable, HP launched the second business-case competition this fall. It’s one way we’re investing in students who are ready to step up and reinvent not only the business landscape, but mindsets, too.
