We believe breakthrough innovations happen when teams are inclusive and diverse. To serve every athlete individually and completely, across hundreds of countries where we do business, we need teams that reflect the diversity of our consumers and a culture of inclusivity that respects the communities in which we live and work.
We know the best ideas often come from unexpected places and our individual differences bring new perspectives to the table.
We create products, services, and experiences for today’s athlete while solving problems for the next generation.
Our mission — to bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world — drives us to encourage every person to reach their full potential, whether it’s on the track, at work or at home. We strive to help people be active and engaged, fully participating in the world around them. What’s good for our consumers is also good for our employees and our communities.
At Nike, we are serious about unleashing the potential of our employees. Given the fast pace of our growth, we see it as an imperative to ready many generations of world-class talent for the opportunities ahead.
This begins with inspiring employees to own their careers and engaging them, so they can do their best work. In addition, we have focused on creating world-class managers who can lead, coach and inspire their teams every day in pursuit of the highest performance.
At NIKE, Inc., we see a world where everybody is an athlete—united in the joy of movement. Driven by our passion for sport and our instinct for innovation, we aim to elevate human potential. Whether our job is designing the ultimate sneaker or coding a revolutionary app, we’re united by the same mission: to bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world. That means you. Because, as Bill Bowerman—Nike’s co-founder and legendary coach—once said, “If you have a body, you are an athlete.” Every day, we are demanding a better future for ourselves, our athletes, and our communities. We believe that diversity fosters creativity and accelerates innovation. We believe in protecting a planet where all athletes can thrive. And we believe every kid, everywhere, should have access to sport.
The company was founded by Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight in 1972 and is headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon.
