Be Equal

Indigenous

Native Americans have been contributing to IBM’s inclusive culture for over three decades. Through individual and company support, IBM shares a deeper understanding and appreciation of Native/Indigenous peoples. We are helping to elevate IBM as an appealing place to work for the Native/Indigenous population.
