Women In Salesforce

Technology intertwines with our working and personal lives every day. It enables transformations. It’s at the heart of innovation. There has never been a better time to work in the most fascinating, fastest-growing industry in the world. And there has never been a better time to pass on our knowledge and passion to the next generation.

However, it is still clear that more needs to be done to increase diversity and inclusion within the industry.

  • 26% of computing-related jobs are held by women*
  • Women hold only 16% of positions at the senior level within the tech industry**
  • For computing fields, women earn only 87% of what men earn***

Through insightful Q&A’s with leading female innovators in the ecosystem, career advice blogs and regular meetups, Women In Salesforce aims to provide you with all the content and networking opportunities needed to help you make the most out of the ecosystem.
