Kelly co-leads talent development for Salesforce Women’s Network (SWN) Chicago, an ERG dedicated to amplifying the progress of women through personal and professional development. In her leadership role, she helps organize events and workshops to help SWN members upskill, discover new resources, and gain confidence in their professional endeavors.
Through SWN, Kelly and fellow members aspire to create a space where women gain “the confidence needed to advocate for themselves, stand out, and take on leadership positions while sponsoring women along the way.”
Her most memorable event with SWN was when she conducted a networking workshop with a former colleague for employees and the Chicago community. "The goal was to empower attendees to think about ways they can build thriving career relationships and elevate their careers in the process. The event was a hit. The women gained clear steps they needed to increase their confidence and maximize their network."
Moving forward, Kelly is excited about SWN’s continued impact as well as its partnership with Salesforce’s Career Development team. Together, they’re piloting a new program to help employees further their careers at the company. “This [work] is blending so many of my passions together as it relates to women empowerment, gender equality, and career development. I can't wait to see the impact this initiative will have.”
