McKinsey's research has found that diversity in leadership directly corresponds to better company performance. However, diversity statistics in Silicon Valley show that minorities are not getting a seat at the table when it comes to leadership. While Asian and Asian-Americans are well represented in lower level positions, they are severely underrepresented in management and executive-level positions. Beyond that, African-Americans are among the most underrepresented groups in leadership today. Why is this happening and how did these powerhouse leaders from top companies overcome the racial barriers to succeed and inspire others? Hear the experiences and perspectives from top executives at Farmers, 24 Hour Fitness, PlanGrid, and AnyPerk on the importance of role models, the burden of expectations, and their own story of breaking barriers. At Dreamforce 2016, we're celebrating equality for all of our employees, customers, and partners with a series of sessions curated by the Salesforce Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) aka Salesforce Ohana Groups. These sessions bring us the worldview of various facets of our diverse community and provide a chance for all of us to learn more about each other.
