We’re proud to be joining more than 150 leading companies in signing the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
“Much of Adobe’s success can be attributed to a simple belief that our founders instilled in our culture: Great ideas come from everywhere in the company. In today’s ultra-competitive environment, it’s critical to cultivate a strong, diverse workforce who bring their best ideas to work every day. We are committed to making Adobe a great place to work, where everyone can contribute and succeed,” said Shantanu Narayen, chairman, president and chief executive officer.
Like many tech companies, we’ve been working hard to make our workforce more diverse, with efforts to improve the pipeline, our recruiting practices and the environment in which we work. Over the past couple years, we’ve made important moves like conducting an analysis to ensure equal pay for women in the U.S., extending family leave time, becoming more transparent with our diversity numbers and increasing support of coding immersion programs for women and minorities.
“We’re making progress with our diversity and inclusion programs, but we are eager to do more,” said Donna Morris, executive vice president, Customer and Employee Experience. “We’re looking forward to working side-by-side with other leaders of the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion initiative to drive equal opportunity for all, regardless of gender, race, national origin, sexual orientation, age, or any other characteristic.”
Adobe is committed to building a fair, inclusive workplace and supporting our employees’ personal needs. We think it’s the most tangible sign we can give that our employees are more than the work they do every day; they are valued individuals who help make us the company we are.
