Equality is a core value at Salesforce. More than ever before, creating a culture of equality isn’t just the right thing to do. In fact, Salesforce’s main priority is to empower people to innovate, build deeper connections with communities, customers and partners.
Salesforce has a long-standing history of supporting the LGBTQIA+ community and ensuring 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 LGBTQIA+ community.
Salesforce continues to be GOLD sponsors of the Australian LGBTQ Inclusion Awards in 2022 as in 2021, demonstrating its commitment to providing financial support to LGBTQIA+ charities.
