Salesforce, an American cloud-based software company headquartered in San Francisco, is offering to help employees who have concerns about access to "reproductive healthcare" to move out of Texas in light of the state’s new law banning abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected around six weeks.
Salesforce CEO Mark Benioff tweeted Friday, "Ohana if you want to move we’ll help you exit TX. Your choice," sharing a link to a CNBC story about the company’s offer. Ohana is a Hawaiian term meaning extended family. In a message sent through the business communication platform Slack, Salesforce told thousands of employees on Friday, "We stand with all of our women at Salesforce and everywhere."
"These are incredibly personal issues that directly impact many of us — especially women," the message said. "We recognize and respect that we all have deeply held and different perspectives."
