                        Diversity and Inclusion

                        Applied Materials’ innovations make possible the technology shaping the future. To achieve this, we employ some of the best, brightest and most talented people in the world who work together as part of a winning team.

                        Diversity and inclusion are essential to building winning teams and driving innovation. Virtually every nationality, culture and background is represented within Applied Materials, and we believe it is a competitive advantage to have diversity in a company focused on innovation. We rely on teams of people who not only look different but think differently and bring different perspectives and experiences to share their best thinking and engage in real collaboration in an environment of mutual respect.

                        At Applied Materials, we are building upon a culture that values diversity and inclusion. Recently, we have made progress in our efforts to increase the representation of women globally and underrepresented minorities in the United States. We still have more to do and believe in sharing our goals for diversity and inclusion as well as our progress.

                        Our people are our greatest strength

                        Carl - Operations

                        “What I enjoy most about Applied is the challenging work and the opportunities I have to collaborate with other teams to develop amazing solutions.

                        In my current job, I get to work with some of the brightest people in the industry. I believe our diversity of thought and ideas help to fuel innovation.”


                        “One of the main reasons I chose to join Applied was its stability as a leading company in its industry. At first, I thought I would learn best practices and then go to a flashy start-up. But with all of the career development opportunities I have been given and been encouraged to make for myself - challenging new job roles, being supported by excellent mentors, working on projects that span the company and impact all employees, there’s just too much exciting stuff happening, and I'm looking forward to an exciting and long career.”


                        “Applied has provided me with an opportunity to develop solid fundamentals as a young professional in a fast-paced, technically challenging setting. Everyday I get to push the envelope of materials engineering. In my experience, even new college graduates can seize opportunities to make resounding contributions to the company and the industry as a whole.”
