At Salesforce, we believe that our diverse employee community is a key contributor to our success and a huge part of what makes this a great place to work.
There is an enormous benefit to having a work environment that boasts a wide range of mindsets, cultures, experiences, and perspectives. That's why we cultivate and champion an environment where people from all backgrounds feel welcome, valued, and respected.
Our goal is for every Salesforce employee to truly be at home in our culture, and to free to bring their whole selves to work every day. We take gender equality very seriously, and believe that women and men should be given the same professional and financial opportunities. And we aren't just talking the talk...we're walking the walk. In 2015, Marc Benioff made a public promise to ensure gender equality throughout our organization, saying "My job is to make sure that women are treated 100% equally at Salesforce in pay, opportunity and advancement."
We are committed to women having the same executive roles, attending the same meetings, and being presented with the same career opportunities as men. Our company is driving this initiative forward with programs like leadership development training for our executive women, interviewing at least one or more female candidate for every executive position, Lean In circles, workshops and open discussions, and much more.
Equality is a core value at Salesforce. We believe that businesses can be powerful platforms for social change and that our higher purpose is to drive Equality for all. Creating a culture of Equality isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s also the smart thing. Diverse companies are more innovative and better positioned to succeed in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
We strive to create workplaces that reflect the communities we serve and where everyone feels empowered to bring their full, authentic selves to work. There is more work to be done, but with the help of our entire Ohana — our employees, customers, partners, and community — we can achieve #EqualityForAll.
