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
