Equality is a core value at Salesforce. We believe that businesses can be powerful platforms for social change and that our higher purpose is to drive Equality for all. Creating a culture of Equality isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s also the smart thing. Diverse companies are more innovative and better positioned to succeed in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

We strive to create workplaces that reflect the communities we serve and where everyone feels empowered to bring their full, authentic selves to work. There is more work to be done, but with the help of our entire Ohana — our employees, customers, partners, and community — we can achieve #EqualityForAll.

For the first time ever, we're partnering with the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and JOY 94.9 to help share Salesforce's belief that creating a culture of Equality isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s also the smart thing to do. This is an incredible opportunity for Salesforce to showcase Equality as one of our core values and for our business, our employees and our community to be VISIBLE, VOCAL and PROUD.

We believe that everyone should be able to bring their authentic selves to work and we're excited to embrace the fun, energy and excitement of the Mardi Gras parade with our employees, customers and partners.
We are proud to be partnering with JOY 94.9 who will be joining us and providing awesome tunes on our Mardi Gras float. JOY 94.9 are one of the amazing LGBTIQ+ organisations that we're proud to support in APAC. Our employees in Melbourne volunteer by digitising JOY's extensive music library and recording their community announcements.

The trail to Equality for all starts with transparency, education, inclusive dialogue, quick action, community building, and an unbreakable commitment to making the world a better place.

We are taking action across four key pillars:

We advocate for Equality in the communities where we live and work, including standing against anti-LGBTQ legislation and standing for marriage Equality.
We are committed to equal pay for equal work. We continually assess for pay equity across the entire organisation.
We believe Equality begins with education. We support equal access to quality public education for all through VTO, stem programming, and more.
We strive to create workplaces that are reflective of the communities we serve. We do this through our Ohana groups, workforce development programs, inclusive hiring, employee training, and more.

Inequality, in all its forms — gender, LGBTQ, racial, or otherwise — is an issue that every company must address for their own benefit and to create a better world. We believe businesses need to focus on closing the Equality gap with the same energy put into creating new products and markets.”
