The tech industry as a whole has historically been known as a traditionally male-dominated environment and whilst there is still more that needs to be done, there is no doubt that Salesforce is paving the way for women in tech.
In fact, Salesforce recently topped a new Diversity & Inclusion rating factor by Glassdoor, scoring 4.6 out of five for their work to promote equality. The Trailblazing Women Summit, is an annual gender equality event hosted by Salesforce.
To celebrate the inclusive nature of the ecosystem we have listed below 3 inspiring women to watch in Salesforce ecosystem.

“The biggest thing that I’ve wanted to do, and what I’ve seen has been a need with Supermums, is to provide role models and create awareness.”
