“Much of Adobe’s success can be attributed to a simple belief that our founders instilled in our culture: Great ideas come from everywhere in the company. 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, President and CEO, Adobe
Adobe is investing in three key areas to drive greater diversity and inclusion.
Adobe helps empower underrepresented youth through Black Girls Code.
Building the industry pipeline.
Adobe and the Adobe Foundation are working to diversify the tech industry through our Youth Coding Initiative, GenHERation sponsorship, GEM Fellowship programme and other strategic investments. We began partnering with Girls Who Code in 2013 and we've grown our commitment to now sponsor five sites and four employee instructors in the organisation's alumnae and summer immersion programmes. We also partner with nonprofits including Black Girls Code, CodeNow, Urban Arts Partnership, Technovation and in 2015 added three new partners, ChickTech, City Year and Code as a Second Language, to further drive global impact.
Attracting diverse candidates.
We partner with Jopwell and LinkedIn to identify, recruit and hire exceptional and diverse talent and we sponsor and recruit at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers and National Society of Black Engineers conferences. We're designing programmes to expand the ways we find and interact with candidates. And we've recently partnered with the NeuroLeadership Institute to develop a course for employees aimed at mitigating unconscious bias in decision-making.

Enhancing our employee experience.
Our employee networks — AccessAdobe, AdobeProud (LGBTQ), Adobe & Women, Asian Employee Network, Black Employee Network, Hispanic & Latino Employee Network and Veterans Employee Network — help foster an inclusive work environment. We received a perfect score of 100 and the distinction of being a "Best Place to work for LGBT Equality" on the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index. Development programmes for female employees include the Women's Executive Shadow Programme, Worldwide Field Operations Leadership Circles, Voice & Influence Circles and WOMEN Unlimited. And we partner with Stanford University's Clayman Institute for Gender Research as well as Catalyst to access resources, research, events and a community of diversity and inclusion leaders.
