Together, we can reach Equality for all.

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. We know that diverse and inclusive companies are more innovative and better positioned to succeed.

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 employees, customers, partners, and community — we can walk together on this journey to #EqualityForAll.

We focus on four core Equality pillars.

At Salesforce, we believe the path to Equality begins 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.
In 2015, we made a commitment to ensure equal pay for equal work. Since then, we've conducted four global equal pay assessments and invested $10.3 million to address unexplained pay differences between genders, and across race and ethnicity in the U.S.
We believe Equality begins with education. That's why we've donated more than $50 million to US public schools and employees volunteer at 106 schools globally as part of the Circle the Schools program. 
We strive to create workplaces that are reflective of the communities we serve. We do this through our Equality Groups, our allyship practices, workforce development programs, inclusive practices, employee training and more. 

We are building a more inclusive Salesforce by empowering our Equality Groups and building a company of allies.

At Salesforce, we work to cultivate a culture of belonging. One way we do this is through our Equality Groups. These are employee-led and employee-organized groups focused on building community and empowering our underrepresented communities. They also invite in allies to join and help champion Equality by asking, listening, showing up, and speaking up.

Equality groups are centered around common identities, life experiences, or backgrounds. Their mission is to make Equality a reality both inside of Salesforce and the communities in which we live and work. We are proud to have 1 in 2 employees as part of an Equality Group.

We are committed to Equality for all.


Inequality, in all its forms — gender, LGBTQ, racial, disability, 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.”

Tony Prophet, Chief Equality Officer, Salesforce
