The Partner Pledge launched back in 2018 and the objective was to create a rallying cry for likeminded businesses, who have shared values to pledge commitments and drive impact for major topics concerning our people, industry and society, as a whole.
In recent years we have seen disruption across the world due to the pandemic, injustices impacting people due to biases and a clear message of warning on how we treat our planet. We at Microsoft and our Partners are in a unique position to come together, to help make a change.
So, for the next level and evolution of our Partner Pledge we have simplified into 3 themes, still based on our core framework, however we will be looking for partners to pledge commitments aligned to the 3 areas, rather than 5 firmly defined topics. We therefore commit as Microsoft and the Microsoft Partner ecosystem to the three pillars below: Growing Talent in our Industry, Enhancing Diversity and Inclusion and Shaping a Desirable World for our future.
Our Microsoft Partner Pledge is here to show that Partners Make More Possible!
