Recently named a Best Workplace in Germany by Great Places to Work for the sixth year in a row, Salesforce knows that untapped talent is the future of technology.
Having created the #1 CRM ecosystem to help businesses succeed, the organization continues to invest in creating not only innovative technology but opportunities and access to educate anyone who is interested in learning about the Salesforce products. The Trailblazer ecosystem is a community that provides equal opportunities and access to education to those that historically have been excluded from the tech industry, such as underrepresented minorities, people who have fled areas of conflict, and university students at all levels.
Over the past year, Salesforce’s Germany hub has established and supported different programs and initiatives with the goal to develop Salesforce talent coming from diverse backgrounds. Today we would like to highlight three of them:
“The Salesforce myAbility program helped me to gain insights into the professional daily routine at an IT company. I attended meetings, and was able to build hands-on experience with regards to Sustainability solutions and strategy. Everyone I worked with was very nice and helpful.”

“"Blue Road Academy has provided training that has brought renewed hope to me as a migrant in Germany. I came to Germany with a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communication, but I have never been able to find my feet due to language and many other restrictions! I first came across Blue Road Academy via Facebook, I applied and got accepted! At the beginning of the Salesforce classes in Berlin, the first initial days of the program were amazing. I discovered a passion that can help me land an interesting career! Since the start of Blue Road’s course, I have been having fun every day! “ ”

Germany is a hub for innovative talent. Salesforce aims to create opportunities for all individuals, from any background, interested in developing technical skills. From free Trailhead trainings to the partnerships with impactful organizations like the myAbility Talent Program, Blue Road Academy, and universities such as IU, Salesforce is dedicated to closing the digital skills gap while always keeping the core value of equality at the center.
