Inclusion and diversity At Apple, we remain committed to building a more equitable and inclusive world by increasing diverse representation at every level, fostering an inclusive culture that brings everybody in, and ensuring equitable pay and access to opportunity for all. Inclusive representation in leadership is a powerful driver of progress. At Apple, leaders of all backgrounds are working to grow and develop our next generation of leaders from within. We’re committed to increasing the number of managers from underrepresented communities, because differences in our backgrounds, our identities, and the way we think ultimately make our teams stronger and more innovative. At Apple, we work every day to create an inclusive, safe, and supportive environment for all our team members. We’re always finding new ways to invest in our teams’ development and to encourage collaboration and creativity. And we provide strong and comprehensive benefits and competitive compensation. We believe we’re a better and more innovative company when people have support and the opportunity to be their best selves. Our approach With over 165,000 team members* around the world, our people are at the heart of everything we do. From their first day, Apple team members have the resources and opportunities to build new skill sets, pursue new passions, and feel supported and cared for at work and beyond. Our People team supports our overall employee experience — from hiring to retaining our talented team members — through our inclusive culture, learning opportunities, compensation, and benefits. The team is led by Deirdre O’Brien, Senior Vice President of Retail + People, reporting to CEO Tim Cook. Deirdre works with the People team to help Apple connect with, develop, and care for team members — and to help everyone do the best work of their lives. A safe environment is also integral to unlocking the potential of all of our team members. And our commitment to environment, health, and safety (EHS) extends to contractors, customers, and communities as well. We’re working hard to make sure our people are safe no matter where they are when they’re conducting business for Apple. We have procedures in place to identify and mitigate possible hazards, and we’re prepared to respond to any crises that may arise. Our Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Luca Maestri oversees Apple’s EHS program, which is driven by an expert leadership team. We have robust workplace policies and practices, including our Business Conduct Policy, Human Rights Policy, and EHS Policy, that articulate our strong commitment to our people and to creating an environment where they can do their best work. Accountability measures across the company allow us to track progress and build a foundation for lasting and durable change. We’re listening to employee feedback, amplifying underrepresented voices, and taking action to meet our teams’ needs. From hiring to development and engagement, we’re making sure every part of Apple is increasing inclusion and representation. Senior leaders now have access to data that helps them assess how well they’re driving diversity within their teams and organizations. We’re building inclusion and diversity measures into our annual review process to create consistency in how we drive and track progress. In the last year, we completed comprehensive data reviews with executive leadership and organizational action plans within every line of business. *As of December 2021 Appendix Governance Communities Suppliers Customers Our P eople Environment Introduction Apple’s 2022 ESG Report 23
