Shweta Rajpal Kohli, Director, Government Affairs, Salesforce India
“At Salesforce we are dedicated to promoting gender equality in the workplace by empowering, supporting, and investing in our global community. Equality is a core value at Salesforce, and one of the most powerful examples of this is our ongoing commitment to equal pay. To date, Salesforce has spent a total of over $10.3 million USD to ensure equal pay for equal work.
Every year we conduct a pay audit we learn something new that helps us continue to improve upon our process. This year, we've incorporated equal pay directly into our annual employee compensation process. As addressing compensation during planning isn’t enough, We're looking at every aspect of the employee journey to help level the playing field, starting with the recruiting process.
Women currently make up 33.0% of our global workforce, up from 31.6% in 2018. Beyond this increase in representation, the overall number of women working at Salesforce increased by 28.3% - which is nearly 2000 additional female employees.
We are living in an era of abundant opportunities, irrespective of our gender or race. Today, women are also increasingly recognized for their contributions across the board. As women, It is now more important than ever before to get ahead of one another with our willingness to provide her with all the resources she needs to be successful.”
