What you should know

The future belongs to those who innovate, and Adobe encourages their people to lead the way through its KickBox program. KickBox provides everything an employee, in any role within the organization, needs to take an idea from inception to fruition. It guides entrepreneurial-minded employees through the innovation process in a fast-paced, hands-on manner. It starts off with an “education in a box”—in the famous red box, to be exact—and a $1,000 gift card to execute the idea.

Employees are excited about the possibilities of KickBox, with one saying, “This proves Adobe is serious about innovation. More importantly, it proves that Adobe is right about how we are approaching innovation. Hands down, this has been the single most impactful workshop I’ve ever attended. I always thought I was an effective innovator. I now know that I will be.”

Not only does Adobe support innovation, it supports women in advancing their careers. Leadership Circles is its global women’s development flagship program and is designed to build leaders who drive their own careers and their own success. This comprehensive, 10-month program is a powerful combination of individual, small-group, and large-group experiential learning as well as face-to-face and virtual learning environments amplified with executive coaching.

The Women Leadership Summit is one of Adobe’s largest learning and development opportunities open to all Adobe regular employees across every region (women and men). The one-day internal Summit brings together external thought leaders and inspirational speakers, Adobe executives and several hundred Adobe employees (female and male) for networking, information sharing and career development. Speakers have included Brene Brown, Samantha Bee, and Kim Bryant, founder of Black Girls Code.
