Give back and make the world a more equal place.

Each day of Dreamforce brings opportunities to join the conversation about creating equality and taking action to give back. Last year, we heard from people who have dedicated their lives to making the world a more equal place, including Trailblazers like Former First Lady Michelle Obama, Ginni Rometty, and Taraji P. Henson. Our speakers this year will be equally as accomplished and awe-inspiring. Keep checking back for more details on this year’s agenda.

Daily giving-back activities also give you hands-on opportunities to make an impact. Last year attendees participated in an online Dreamforce Quest to raise 1 million dollars in support of organizations that ensure our youth are Future Ready including College Track, Upwardly Global and Girl Scouts.
