“Despite being one of the world’s fastest growing economies, the gender wage gap in India is a matter of concern and corrective measures to address this have been long overdue,” said Abdul Jaleel, Vice President, Employee Experience, Adobe India.

Jaleel further said, “at Adobe, we believe that employees perform best when put on a level footing and valued equally, and are proud to have achieved our goal of pay parity in India”.
