What Women Should Know about Working At Salesforce
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.
