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.

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 organization.
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.
 

At Salesforce, our culture is built around the Hawaiian concept of Ohana, which means family. Ohana is the deep-seated support system we nurture inside our company that extends from our employees to our customers, our partners, and our communities. 

This value is embodied in our Ohana Groups. These are employee-led and employee-organized groups centered around common life experiences or backgrounds, and their allies. Their mission is to make Equality a reality both inside Salesforce and the communities in which we live and work.  

 
 
 

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.”
