Adobe diversity by the numbers.

We measure our progress on diversity and inclusion in many ways, from regularly surveying employees about their workplace experiences to monitoring the fairness of our hiring and compensation practices. One important dimension of this effort is tracking the makeup of our employee base over time.

 

Gender at Adobe.

At the end of fiscal year 2021 women represented 33.8 percent of our global workforce. The exact gender mix varied across our sites and geographies.

*Leadership: Employees who are director-level and above with at least one full-time employee direct report.  

**Technical occupations in computing and information technology that require deep technical specialization and knowledge, as well as managers, directors, and executives who oversee technical employees and the development and delivery of technical products.

Race and ethnicity at Adobe.

At the end of fiscal 2021, underrepresented minority (URM) employees (i.e., those who identify as Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American, Pacific Islander and/or two or more races) comprised 10.9% of our U.S. employee base.

Data source: Adobe regular employee data ending fiscal year 2021 (December 3, 2021). Percentages may not add up to 100 due to rounding.

 

Starting in FY2021, an updated methodology was applied to calculate diversity metrics. Our metrics now represent the total global workforce inclusive of those who choose not to self-identify their gender and/or race and ethnicity data. In FY2021, <1% of our global employee base hadn’t disclosed gender data and <5% of our US employee base hadn’t disclosed race and ethnicity data.

 

*Leadership: Employees who are director-level and above with at least one full-time employee direct report.  

**Technical occupations in computing and information technology that require deep technical specialization and knowledge, as well as managers, directors, and executives who oversee technical employees and the development and delivery of technical products.

Pay parity data.

We’re proud to say we have achieved global gender pay parity for Adobe employees as of October 2018. We’ve also achieved pay parity among underrepresented minority (URM) and non-URM employees in the U.S., and we’re focused on maintaining pay parity as we continue to grow.
