We are excited to welcome Salesforce as the newest sponsor of the MassTLC Professional Women’s Community. Learn more about Salesforce and their goals for participating in this vibrant community.

Who is Salesforce?
Salesforce is the world’s #1 customer relationship management (CRM) platform. We help your marketing, sales, commerce, service, and IT teams work as one from anywhere — so you can keep your customers happy everywhere. We unify people to help businesses and communities pursue their loftiest goals, solve their thorniest challenges, and harness their success to leave our planet a little better than we found it.

A key element of our company culture is volunteerism. At Salesforce, giving back to the community is championed with every employee encouraged to take fully-paid Volunteer Time Off. Volunteering is a key part of the Salesforce 1-1-1 Philanthropic Model: Salesforce gives 1% of its product, 1% of its equity, and 1% of its employees’ time to philanthropic causes and the non-profit sector.

In Massachusetts, we are represented with our strong Commerce Cloud (formerly known as Demandware) and Einstein (formerly known as CQuotient) teams, both founded locally in the Metro Boston hub. We have multiple offices in Burlington, Cambridge, and Boston, and we take pride in continuously giving back to our local communities and organizations in need, such as Habitat for Humanity, Lazarus House, Charles River Watershed Association, and Year Up. We also volunteer with various education and workforce development partners that support youth programs within our community.

Why are you excited to be part of the MassTLC Professional Women’s community?
Our charter for this year is to amplify our focus on women in our organization and within the Massachusetts Technology hub. The Technology workforce has made great strides towards equality; however, we’re looking to further advance visibility and career opportunities for women and all underrepresented minorities through mentorship programs and networking opportunities.

What are you hoping you can share and receive from the MassTLC Professional Women’s community?
First and foremost, we want to learn together with our MassTLC Community. We all are building programs and objectives to advance our organizations. but together, we are stronger and can move faster. We’re looking to share our experiences, lessons learned, and thought leadership within this amazing community. We are eager to hear insights and success stories from other members.
