Microsoft’s annual company meeting now part of week of employee events in July

For years, Microsoft has held its annual company meeting in September.

This year, under new CEO Satya Nadella, the meeting will be held in July, as part of a weeklong series of events called oneweek. The oneweek events are intended to inform employees about, and inspire them to engage in,  the company’s vision and strategy for the upcoming fiscal year.

It made better sense for those events to be held at the start of the company’s fiscal year in July, rather than in September, a Microsoft spokeswoman said.

The company meeting will be held  July 28 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Washington State Convention Center. As in previous years, it will be webcast to employees worldwide. It is not open to press or the public.

Also part of oneweek are hackathons, scheduled for July 29-30, with a live hackathon event to be held on the Microsoft campus’ soccer field; and a product fair to be held July 30-31 at The Commons on campus. Those events are also not open to the public.
