At Adobe, we believe that when people feel respected and included they can be more creative, innovative, and successful.
While we have more work to do to advance diversity and inclusion, we’re investing to move our company and industry forward. We call this Adobe For All.
As said by Anuradha Pentareddy, Senior Director, Adobe Customer Solutions India & Global Shared Services Head,
"The IT industry has evolved in leaps and bounds, but women's participation continues to remain a huge concern. We need more avenues and platforms to nurture women in the workforce as women’s employment in India stands at 26%. While there is a lot done in this space, we need to clearly do more. At Adobe, we took some bold steps around bringing pay & opportunity parity. We’ve had multiple initiatives addressing this challenge at every level – from creating a pipeline of women in tech through our Technovation program for young girls to nurturing women at the workplace, to mentoring them as they return to their careers after a break.
Leadership Circles and Women Executive Shadow Programs have been great platforms around coaching & development of women leaders. These programs consist of a variety of activities such as professional coaching, skill development workshops and perspective building training. Additionally, Women in Tech is another channel, to bring women from different industries together and share their success stories. Our SheSparks program encourages women to resume work post a break with focussed mentoring.
Fortunately, we have found that the programs and investments for women drive deeper diversity and inclusion across various dimensions that go beyond gender."
