Destiny brought Deaf Kids Code and Salesforce together to solve the gap in tech talent. According to the CDC, people who are deaf/ hard-of-hearing are at high risk of unemployment or chronic underemployment at a rate of 65% or more nationally. Shireen Hafeez started Deaf Kids Code to promote computer programming skills to the deaf/ hard-of-hearing and has a dream to build a global pipeline of diverse tech talent. Join us to hear the story that led her to Salesforce to grow and scale her operations, and growing community of partners. 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.
