We are excited to announce the lineup for the Dreamforce 2017 Equality Summit, sponsored by Deloitte Digital.

At Salesforce, we believe our higher purpose is to drive Equality for all. As part of this, we believe that companies, and the people who lead them, can be powerful platforms for social change. Equality takes commitment from each and every one of us. This Dreamforce we invite you to join us on our path to Equality by attending our 2017 Equality Summit, sponsored by Deloitte Digital.

Beginning as the Women’s Leadership Summit in 2015, we’ve evolved and expanded to include full day of programming featuring today’s most influential Equality Trailblazers. Experience a full day of innovative keynote programming to inspire you on the path to Equality for all.
