As we celebrate the 75th anniversary of Disability Employment Awareness Month and further our commitment towards building a more inclusive workplace for people with disabilities, Salesforce is honored to join “IN” with a coalition of CEOs advocating for the inclusion of people with disabilities within business through the “CEO Letter on Disability Inclusion.” While this is an important milestone along the journey towards inclusion for all, we recognize there is significant work ahead.
“Salesforce recognizes innovation requires inclusion, and furthermore, accessibility. We applaud Salesforce and CEO Marc Benioff on making disability inclusion an organizational commitment and we look forward to partnering with them on this journey.”– Jill Houghton, President and CEO of Disability:IN
The CEO Letter on Disability Inclusion is part of a broader campaign launched by Disability:IN called “Are You IN?” a call to action for CEOs, investors, companies, and business professionals to all join in.
As part of this initiative, each signatory commits to leveraging the Disability Equality Index (DEI), a comprehensive benchmarking tool for disability inclusion, and call on their peers to do the same. This is a meaningful step forward in advancing inclusion for the more than one billion people with disabilities around the world.
Salesforce has participated in the Disability Equality Index for the past two years and has earned a top score of 100 and named a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion”. By hiring inclusively, supporting, and advancing accessible tools and technology, we are helping to build a global economy that includes everyone.
