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

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month
"Hispanic Heritage Month is a great reminder for people who work here that we are a diverse company and that Adobe embraces cultures regardless of where they are from. When we bring high school and college students to Adobe, it’s more than showing them the Adobe product. It’s also about letting them know that, despite where your background is, despite if you come from the fields, despite if your parents don’t have a wealthy life, you can break that barrier by pursuing your dreams and work at a company like Adobe." 
— Sandy Arnesto-Lippolis, Maintenance and Support Renewals Specialist & HOLA (Hispanic and/or LatinX at Adobe) employee network member
