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.

From fiscal 2017 to 2018, we increased the number of females in our global employee base by 1 percent relative to males. The exact gender mix varied across our sites and geographies.

Pay parity data.
