Equality is a core value at Salesforce and we believe because businesses can be powerful platforms for change it is our responsibility to further equality for all. More than ever before, creating a culture of equality isn’t just the right thing to do. It is our collective imperative — empowering us to innovate, build deeper connections with our customers, partners, communities, and ultimately to become a better company always guided by our core values.

We are motivated to support the communities we serve where everyone feels empowered to bring their full, authentic selves to work and be successful from anywhere. In the last year Salesforce Australia employees have volunteered 780 hours to causes which advance equality for the LGBTQI+ community.

So, we celebrate them all, regardless of their orientation, age, gender, abilities, ethnicity or background. We celebrate them for who they are and for the great things we know they will achieve.
