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, President and CEO, Adobe

Adobe is investing in three key areas to drive greater diversity and inclusion.

Building the industry pipeline

Building the industry pipeline.

Adobe and the Adobe Foundation are working to diversify the tech industry through our Youth Coding Initiative and other strategic investments. We began partnering with Girls Who Code in 2013, and we've grown our commitment to now sponsor five sites and five employee instructors in the organization's alumnae and summer immersion programs. We also partner with nonprofits like Black Girls CodeCodeNowGenHERation, Urban Arts Partnership and Technovation to drive global impact.

Attracting diverse candidates.

We partner with Jopwell and LinkedIn to identify, recruit and hire exceptional and diverse talent, and we sponsor and recruit at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, and National Society of Black Engineers conferences. We're designing programs to expand the ways we find and interact with candidates. And we've recently partnered with the NeuroLeadership Institute to develop a course for employees aimed at mitigating unconscious bias in decision-making.

Enhancing our employee experience.

We strive to help employees grow their careers and connect with colleagues. Our employee networks — AccessAdobe, AdobeProud (LGBTQ), Adobe & Women, Asian Employee Network, Black Employee Network, Hispanic & Latino Employee Network and Veterans Employee Network — help foster an inclusive work environment. Development programs for female employees include the Women's Executive Shadow Program, Worldwide Field Operations Leadership Circles and WOMEN Unlimited. And we partner with Stanford University's Clayman Institute for Gender Research as well as Catalyst to access resources, research, events and a community of diversity and inclusion leaders.

Expanding family leave benefits.

In 2015 we announced exciting improvements to our family leave programs to better support working families. These changes make it easier for employees in the U.S. and India to care for a new child. Read the blog post ›
