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 partner with a number of organizations to drive progress and exchange best practices. At the executive leadership level, our CEO, Shantanu Narayen, is part of the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion to help move the business community forward. We work with MAKERS to inspire and accelerate opportunities for women across industries; and we are a founding member of Parity.org, which is committed to bringing gender and race/ethnicity parity to the highest levels of business. Building upon our partnership with Parity.org, we have signed the ParityPledge in Support of People of Color. We are taking an active role in increasing inclusion for people with disabilities through our recruiting partnerships with Project Hired and Disability:In, our pledge as a member of The Valuable 500, and our participation in the Disability Equality Index. We also participated in the the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index, the Working Mother Diversity Best Practices Inclusion Index, and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation Corporate Equality Index.
In addition, we’re working with a number of partners to help us build the tech industry pipeline and attract diverse candidates to Adobe.
