VP of Equality Is The Rationalized Replacement for VP of Diversity at Salesforce.

The HR Capitalist

Take a look, interesting stuff from Salesforce as they seek to change the narrative from Diversity to Equality. There’s a lot of companies across America that struggle with Diversity hiring. They’re under-utilized in multiple job families, and even as they try to attract diverse talent, it hasn’t gone great. Throw in the fact that you can’t pay new hires anything they want without messing up your comp equity, and most companies don’t make the progress they’d like to.

my employer says they’re committed to diversity — how can I hold them to accountable to that?

Ask a Manager

A reader writes: As a white woman working in a company that is not very diverse, I’d like to speak up and hold the company to account over their commitment to diversity. We do use diverse models in our marketing communications, but it seems to me that that’s as far as their commitment to diversity goes. I plan to write to HR to ask about our current data on employee diversity, and what action we intend to take beyond sharing the post on social media.

Alleged Pay Discrimination at Google Makes Marc Benioff and Salesforce Look Amazing.

The HR Capitalist

Back in late 2015, I reported on proactive moves by Salesforce to do pay equity increases across its workforce to eliminate any and all gender pay issues, job by job. At the time, I thought the move was brilliant, as it changed the conversation about workforce diversity to one of workforce equality - an equal goal that once achieved, was bound to change the narrative related to how much slack the world was going to give Salesforce for having some work to do on the diversity front.
