Adobe has announced some exciting new initiatives and a brand new platform called Diverse Voices that reinforce the brand’s commitment to bringing creativity for all to life. These initiatives include presenting a special digital issue of The New York Times’ T Magazine, T Presents: “The 15 Creative Women for Our Time” inspired by, dedicated to and created by women; announcing the fellows for the inaugural Women at Sundance | Adobe Fellowship, where 11 women filmmakers will receive bespoke support to create bold, new work across diverse disciplines; and launching a dedicated place for diverse voices, where everyone can be inspired, learn and share their creativity.

Through these initiatives, Adobe will elevate a diverse set of voices, because they believe regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, or background, everybody should have the opportunity to share their story.
