Akamai Foundation and Social Responsibility

Recently, at Akamai, we launched the Akamai Foundation, to continue to reach a broader, more diverse range of young people with quality Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education. We believe that this work is a vital part of securing the future of technology innovation and closing the diversity gap in STEM careers. Without the collaborative input of our young people, the tech industry cannot continue to thrive. As well

In conversation: SUCCESSFUL WOMEN

Success is a tricky word to define. It means something different to everyone and can only be measured by an individual themselves. Often, success is seen as being about what an individual achieves, rather than about who they grow to be. However, at Akamai, we believe that success is about growth, whether in your personal life or your career. There is no one-size-fits-all way to measure if someone is successful

Why does diversity of thought matter? When a team is made up of several people with similar perspectives, there will always be a natural limit to how broad their thought processes can be. However, when a team

In conversation: It's never too late

There can be barriers to pursuing a career in tech. For many people, the journey isn't straightforward. Many of our Akamai employees have diverse backgrounds and have overcome obstacles to pursue their dream career.

However, at Akamai, we don't believe that

At Akamai, we are extraordinarily lucky to be able to benefit from the unique influence of all our employees. The parents in our team are an incredible asset. They bring levels of
