‘If you want an opportunity to paint the future, this is the place to be!’
Her First Chapter at Salesforce
When it Was Time to Come Back
A New Journey Began
Building a Brighter Future
A lot has changed since Lindsey originally started at Salesforce. In 2016, she recalls BOLDforce, our Black employee resource group, organized and led a candle light vigil supporting victims of police brutality. This got the attention and involvement of the company leadership who recognized the power and need of both this group as well as for space and education around these issues. Now, she sees many more initiatives geared towards the advancement of Equality. “We have made some progress and that gives me hope.’” she said. Whether is it via the Leading Through Change series, internal Talking Equality events, or the recently launched Racial Equality Ally training among many others — Salesforce is using its platform to elevate these urgent conversations and taking action through company-wide programs.
The future at Salesforce is exciting and Lindsey’s passionate about playing an active role in helping define it. After all, as she said, “If you want an opportunity to paint the future, this is the place to be.”
- Living the Salesforce Culture We asked Lindsey how she lives some of the the key components of our culture. This is what she shared!
- Wellbeing: I surround myself with people that are also reimagining the future. To co-create in a community that cares about the future and paints it the same way really energizes me. I also like long walks on the beach, that I can’t go on right now, so for the time being, I daydream.
- Volunteering: I coach people in Tech around diversity, equity and inclusion. Then, I take those earnings and donate them using Salesforce matching to double the impact. One of the main organizations I donate to is Campaign Zero, which is focused on ending police violence in America.
