The Adobe Design team is looking for a Senior Product Manager to
join our Product Equity team. This will be an opportunity for a
Product Manager rooted in social justice to introduce co-design
techniques to Adobe product teams as we address issues of inequity
in our products.
Product Equity is a new initiative at Adobe. We are forming a team

teams that build our products, and chart a path to more equitable
user experiences across race, gender, age, ability, and other forms
of human difference.

issues in their products that may cause users or communities to be
excluded from participating equally. You'll collaborate with our
design research team to recruit users who may experience this
exclusion. And you'll participate in collaborations with our
product teams, connecting them with the product team to look at the
issue and consider a way forward.
This Product Manager will take the lead to build frameworks while
evaluating product team skills and capacities that affect product
inclusion and equity. These will lead to crafting well-defined
objectives (for example, OKRs) that account for the differences in
each product's focus and audience. This Product Manager will also
assist with training whole teams on these frameworks and
objectives, and be the point of contact for product equity to a
number of teams within Adobe.
What You Need to Succeed:

goals on multi-faceted products and projects in a large
organization. The ideal candidate is proficient in many forms of
human difference, including aging, disability, race, Indigeneity,
gender and sexuality, and economic status.

establish relationships and alliances across teams and initiatives
both inside and outside the company.

Bringing the perspectives of your own lived experience to your work
every day, coupled with a dedication to allowing other people and
their experiences to shine through as well.
