Championing the cause to create equal opportunities for people with disabilities.

In this digital, work-from-anywhere world, inclusion and equal access to technology are more important than ever before. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development states that disability cannot be a reason or criterion for lack of access to development programming and the realization of human rights, and it’s up to all of us to lead the charge in creating accessible experiences for all. We can’t do this alone and we don't have all the answers. But we are committed to continually learning and iterating.

At Salesforce, we believe everyone should benefit from our products, experiences, and culture.

What is a11y?

Throughout this site, you'll notice references to "a11y" (pronounced "A-eleven-Y"). This is a globally recognized abbreviation for "accessibility," designed to be more compact for social media character limits. The "11" in the middle stems from software engineering conventions that shorten long words by substituting the number of "middle" letters in a word — in this case, 11. In recent years, a11y has gained momentum outside of the technical realm to represent the broader movement of accessibility and diversity inclusion.

Accessibility in the workplace is a catalyst for inclusion and belongingness.

The more we give people with disabilities access to the same opportunities and experiences, the more inclusive — and stronger — we become.

Our Approach: Empowering People with Disabilities to Succeed

We’ve come a long way at Salesforce, but there is still more work to be done to become the top employer for people with disabilities. Our efforts extend to how we think about our products, events, and experiences.

Design intentionally for and with people with disabilities.

In a broad sense, accessibility allows people with a variety of disabilities to use products and services independently. In practice, that means designing with the community in mind. Here’s how we’ve incorporated accessible experiences into different aspects of our business.
