Girls in STEM

In 2015, Salesforce.org launched a "girls portfolio" with a mission to inspire and educate young girls to pursue careers in technology through events, classes and hands-on experiences. We’ve also doubled down on our community outreach efforts to nonprofits and educational groups focused on driving diversity in tech. Our goal is to help create a pipeline of young women that have the exposure, the experience and the confidence to pursue technology careers.
