Founded in 2004, Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Over 2 billion people use Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, or Messenger every month to stay connected with friends and family, to discover what’s going on in the world, and to share and express what matters to them.

Facebook is defined by our unique culture – one that rewards impact. We encourage people to be bold and solve the problems they care most about. We work in small teams and move fast to develop new products, constantly iterating. The phrase “this journey is 1% finished” reminds us that we’ve only begun to fulfill our mission.

As we evolve our journey to bring the world closer together, we stay true to the same core values to guide the way we work and the decisions we make every step of the way: be open, be bold, move fast, focus on impact, and build social value.

Belonging at Facebook: Diversity and Inclusion

Communities bring the world closer together. They transcend borders, overcoming obstacles to unite neighbors, friends, and families. People from all backgrounds—with diverse experiences, perspectives, and ideas—rely on Facebook to build community. Building a diverse team where everyone belongs is crucial to understanding where we're succeeding and where we need to do better.

Learn more about our efforts and initiatives:

  • Career Development - Facebook offers people who work here opportunities to find work that matters to them, and we understand that finding meaningful work can be different for everyone. We provide a variety of programs dedicated to helping people find community, understand the importance of diverse perspectives, tackle bias, and participate in building an inclusive workplace where they—and everyone around them—can do the best work of their careers.
  • Community and Belonging - At Facebook, we want everyone to feel welcome. We provide many opportunities for people here to connect with likeminded peers with shared perspectives. But we also focus on creating spaces where people feel safe voicing concerns, pointing out where we could do better, and debating approaches. These initiatives and programs help break down barriers that stand in the way of building an environment where everyone feels a sense of ownership and belonging.
  • Increasing Representation - Our ability to serve our communities well begins with the community we build right here at Facebook. We believe in openly sharing what is working—and what isn't—to increase diverse representation on our teams. And we are dedicated to building a team that reflects the diversity of the people, all around the globe, who use Facebook's products and services.
