Adobe has delivered on its commitment to achieve global pay parity across 40 countries.

It had been working towards pay equality since 2016 when it closed the pay gap between white and non-white employees.

Its first step towards gender equality came last year when it reached pay parity in the US, followed by India in January.

Adobe Australia and New Zealand MD Suzanne Steele say she's passionate about advocating for women in leadership.
“I'm thrilled that Adobe has achieved pay parity between men and women in Australia and New Zealand, and around the world,” Steele says.

“When people feel appreciated and included, they can be more creative, innovative and successful. I’m proud to work for a company which values the contribution of all employees, regardless of their gender or background.”
The changes impacted less than 5% of the business' employees and less than 0.2% of its global payroll costs.

“Diversity is about valuing the unique life experience that every employee brings to work every day,” Adobe president and CEO Shantanu Narayen says.
