Pick of the week

Salesforce has continued to champion DEI initiatives in enterprise businesses. It has already met two of its 2019 goals: doubling US representation of Black leaders (VP and above) and increasing the proportion of underrepresented groups to more than half of our US population. It has now announced a new goal aiming to reach 40% women-identifying and non-binary employees globally by the end of 2026.

The announcement came as it re-affirmed its other initiatives:

  • Equal Pay
  • Critical reproductive benefits
  • Gender inclusive benefits
  • Salesforce Parent and Families is its newest and 13th equality group
  • Parental leave
  • Flex work

The announcement was made by Lori Castillo Martinez, Chief Equality Officer and once again shows that Salesforce is willing to announce what it is doing and has achieved for DEI. Will it succeed, and will others follow its example?
