Message from CEO Dave Mosley

At Seagate, Inclusion is so much more than just a core value—it’s how we lead and do business all over the world. When we lead with Inclusion, we create a space for diverse voices to be heard, valued, and elevated, which in turn inspires greater innovation throughout our products, technologies, partnerships, and communities.

From our investors, board of directors, and customers to our employees and their extended communities, the impact that we have as a global leader is powerful and meaningful. While there is much work to be done, I am proud of what we’ve accomplished in supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion, and invite you to explore this report to learn more.
