Salesforce strives to ensure that opportunities within the Salesforce ecosystem are open, fair, and empowering for all globally. We will work to increase the representation of URM in leadership by 50%, and increase Black and URM employees in the U.S.
We are committed to equal pay for equal work. To date, we’ve spent more than $12 million to address any unexplained differences in pay across gender globally and race in the U.S.
We continue investing in opportunity for all by supporting public education and workforce development, as well as enabling the workforce with technical skills of the future through Trailhead.
We support racial equality and justice for Black and underrepresented minorities (URMs) in the U.S. through efforts across our 4 pillars: people, purchasing, philanthropy and policy.
We continue practicing and evangelizing the ethical & humane use of our products and services through customer use policies and embedding ethics by design in the development of our products.
Through the Salesforce Impact Fund, we aim to accelerate the growth of cloud companies addressing some of today’s most pressing needs including education and reskilling, climate action, diversity, equity and inclusion, and providing tech for nonprofits and foundations
