How the fit-tech, health-tech, and well-tech sectors are taking company culture to another dimension, and why you’ll want to be shown in the door.
Our series of six articles, looking at progressive, future-forward brands that are taking their company cultures to a whole new dimension, continues with another trailblazer. In this, Part 6, we look at Nike.
Last but not least, we come to sportswear giant, Nike! Between now and 2025, Nike aims to make some massive changes to its ‘Representation and Hiring’ which will create a much more inclusive and diverse company culture; something we absolutely had to shout about!
Here are Nike’s official goals:
50% representation of women in global corporate workforce* and 45% in leadership positions**
*Global Corporate Workforce includes all global full-time employees who do not work in our retail stores, distribution centers, or Nike Air manufacturing innovation (AIR MI).

*U.S. Corporate Workforce includes all U.S.-based full-time employees who do not work in our retail stores, distribution centers, and Nike Air manufacturing innovation (AIR MI).
$10M investment earmarked for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) and Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HIS) in the form of scholarships and academic partnerships to increase intern and direct hires
Enhance opportunities and marketing of open roles for First-line Athletes* to compete for corporate roles
*First-line athletes include full-time employees who work in our retail stores, distribution centers, or Nike Air manufacturing innovation (AIR MI).
