Join global brands like Twitter, Western Digital Corporation, Lumentum and Zoom in committing to Pledge 25x25!
Western Digital creates environments for data to thrive. As a leader in data infrastructure, the company is driving the innovation needed to help customers capture, preserve, access and transform an ever-increasing diversity of data. Everywhere data lives, from advanced data centers to mobile sensors to personal devices, our industry-leading solutions deliver the possibilities of data. Our data-centric solutions consist of the Western Digital®, G-Technology™, SanDisk®, and WD® brands.
Through our Equity, Inclusion and Diversity Acceleration plan, we are developing underrepresented talent for advancement opportunities. Female professionals across the company’s global footprint, who demonstrate executive leadership potential, are chosen to participate in an 11-week program to develop their professional skills through coaching and mentoring. Each candidate is paired with their manager, to ensure accountability toward development.
Since 25×25 is not simply a pledge but a movement, we hope that our participation will encourage more companies in Silicon Valley and beyond to make the commitment to increasing executive representation by 25%. We are also excited to learn from others and discover new ways to think about how we can achieve our equity, inclusion and diversity goals.

Lumentum is committed to hiring, promoting and retaining leaders from underrepresented backgrounds. That’s why we are taking a progressive look at the hiring and jobs process in ways that not only expand search to new geographies but changes how job descriptions are drafted and how candidates are identified. To maximize a diversified pool of qualified candidates, our recruiters work closely with managers to broaden their view for what skills and experience are truly needed to succeed in an open role and expand geographies where candidates are sought, in order to ensure a diversified candidate pool. Positions will not be filled until a diverse slate of candidates has been vetted equitably through a balanced team of interviewers.
Being in the company of the most creative and innovative companies in the world, we hope to work together to synthesize best practices and create the gold standard blueprint for companies that want to invest in diversifying their leadership teams.
If you are interested in taking the 25x25 Pledge, please reach out to our team to schedule an introductory session. We would welcome the opportunity to share about the Pledge and our future plans.
