We’re purchasing more goods and services from diverse suppliers.
In 2018, we began a concerted effort to use our purchasing power to promote diversity and inclusion. Our new Supplier Diversity program is helping us identify, partner with, and purchase from businesses that are certified as majority-owned and operated by women, minorities, veterans, members of the LGBTQ community, and people with disabilities.
We’re participating in organizations dedicated to driving change.
We’re working with MAKERS to inspire and promote women in technology and across industries. We’re accessing resources from Stanford University’s Clayman Institute for Gender Research and the nonprofit Catalyst organization to expand our knowledge and improve our employee experience. We’re a founding member of Parity.org, which is committed to bringing gender parity to the highest levels of business. And our CEO, Shantanu Narayen, has joined CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion to help move the business community forward.
In addition, we’re working with a number of partners to help us build the tech industry pipeline and attract diverse candidates to Adobe.
