How we work is just as important as what we do. As our team comes together to drive change, we are centered by our core values that guide everything we do.
PUT CHILDREN FIRST
EXPERIENCE THE REALITY
We understand that every team member engages with our work from their own perspective. These diverse perspectives help us make a greater impact. Below are just a few examples of what it means to work at the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation.
For me, working at the Dell Foundation has given me the opportunity to contribute my experience in technology and leadership to impact the lives of students and teachers directly and meaningfully by empowering them with real-time, actionable data. I feel so proud to be a part of what the Foundation does for students and schools every day!
Michael Minuto, Technical Program Manager, Data Driven Education
I love problem solving, and my role at the foundation provides me with the incredible opportunity to work with the smartest and most passionate team members and partners to find scalable solutions that support low-income South Africans into earning opportunities. It’s a privilege to work on one of the toughest challenges facing my country every day.
Ona Meyer, Program Manager, Youth Employment
What grounds our work at the foundation is the idea that everyone deserves opportunity. Bringing that vision to life calls for a lot of imagination, hope, and good solid data – not to mention the partnerships that make it all possible. And what that means for me is that every day, I get to work alongside people who choose to lend their talents to make this vision a reality.
Kimberly Kohan, Communications Manager
I come from a country where poverty and inequality are deep-rooted and part of everyday life. The Dell Foundation has given me the platform to go deep into the problem and be part of long-term solutions. I’m incredibly lucky to have this opportunity!

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The Michael & Susan Dell Foundation is dedicated to transforming the lives of children living in urban poverty. Our mission demands that we seek out and embrace many different voices because bringing together a diversity of ideas and experiences is the most powerful way we know to ensure the people we serve have opportunities to succeed. To achieve this vision, we must create a diverse team and inclusive culture, listen to the people we serve, and build authentic and trusting partnerships. We work to overcome both the causes and the consequences of major inequities and systemic racism by ensuring that resources and opportunities are fairly distributed.
