Creating a workplace that works for everyone.

Diversity and inclusion
Shantanu Narayen, President and CEO, Adobe
“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.”
 — Shantanu Narayen, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Adobe
