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. 

Nowhere is this felt more deeply than in our Ohana groups — which celebrate and bring together diverse team members 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 its 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."
At Salesforce, we are working together with our entire Ohana — our employees, customers, partners, community organizations and the tech industry — to build a path forward to Equality for all. We are taking action across four key pillars:
We advocate for Equality in the communities where we live and work.
We continuously assess and aim for pay equity across the entire organization.
We are committed to furthering access to K-12 education for all.
We strive to create a diverse and inclusive company culture without barriers to advancement.
Achieving our vision of Equality for all is going to be a long journey, and ultimately, we'll reach success by many steps along the way. The trail starts with transparency, education, inclusive dialogue, quick action, community building, and an unbreakable commitment to making the world a better place.
