BONUS: Representation Matters
42:05
We are thrilled to welcome you all into the new year by bringing you a healthy dose of exclusive, inspiring content. This bonus episode will hold you over until we premiere Season 3 of Blazing Trails. On this episode, we are highlighting content from Salesforce's first-ever racial equality summit, Representation Matters. Last November, we gathered some of the brightest minds from the African-American and Latinx communities for a day of thoughtful dialogue. At this groundbreaking event, we heard from luminary keynote speakers and panelists that included c-level executives, venture capitalists, and civil rights activists. Each shared timely and thought-provoking points on how to elevate the conversation around racial equality in tech, in the workplace, and in our communities. Hear from the inspiring Trailblazers: Ana Recio, EVP, Global Recruiting at Salesforce, Sylvia Acevedo, CEO of Girl Scouts, Nellie Borrero, Managing Director and Senior Global Inclusion and Diversity Lead at Accenture, Ebony Frelix, EVP and Chief Philanthropy Officer at Salesforce.org, civil rights activist, author, and founder of Pod Save the People, DeRay Mckesson, Cristina Jones, SVP of Trailblazer Marketing at Salesforce, Arlan Hamilton, Founder and Managing Director of Backstage Capital, Erik Moore, Founder and Managing Director of Base Ventures, and Miriam Rivera, the Co-founder and Managing Director of Ulu Ventures.

Compassion in Action
30:43
Respect, decency, compassion, and taking care of yourself. All of these factors are critical in how we interact in our organizations and workplaces. There are those who give, and those who take, and those who fall somewhere in-between–Where do YOU stand? How can we understand how compassion works from an organization? How can we work to find purpose and meaning in the every day? When we look back and see the mistakes and failures that we face, how can we employ self-compassion? Adam Grant is a professor at The Wharton School of Business and a New York Times bestselling author. Last year at Dreamforce, he joined us to talk about compassion, feedback, and his background as an organizational psychologist. Hear some amazing, funny, and insightful stories of his background and insights on compassion.

Art and Activism
45:04
One of the ways we practice our core value of Equality is by encouraging everyone in our Ohana to awaken their inner Trailblazer. Artists, activists, and advocates are prime examples of people who saw something they wanted to change and chose to take the reigns and make the world a more equal place for all. Equality is a core value of Salesforce, but if we work together, it can be a core value everywhere, in every industry, and every community around the world. The conversations we will explore on this episode help to shed on a light on how to do just that. Last year at Dreamforce, we were lucky enough to have some of the most notable and accomplished trailblazers join us for part of our Equality Summit. These activists are using their platforms to stand up for issues that matter. Learn how these activists and advocates are creating positive change across racial, gender, LGBTQ, and disability equality. We will hear from some of today's most prominent activists, such as DeRay Mckesson, Civil Rights Activist and Founder, Pod Save the People, Haben Girma, Disability Rights Advocate, Sarah McBride, National Press Secretary, Human Rights Campaign, and Dr. Vivienne Ming, Theoretical Neuroscientist and Managing Partner of Socos Labs. This conversation is one that will leave you enlightened and inspired. Let's listen in...

Sustainability: Oceans and Beyond
36:22
At Salesforce, one of our core values of giving back also encompasses our drive towards sustainability. This means sustainable office buildings for employees, no single-use water bottles at Dreamforce, and a whole lot more. In previous years at Dreamforce, we've held a spotlight on the importance of saving our oceans. What does this mean in practice? On a planet where everything is connected, the health of our oceans is intimately linked to social and economic well-being. New technology and creative ideas are allowing us to explore further into how we can take what we need while promoting a sustainable, prosperous future. Last year at Dreamforce, we got a candid view on one of the key global priorities for the 21st century at the Fortune CEO Series. The Future of our Oceans panel was moderated by Adam Lashinsky, Executive Editor at Fortune and featured Douglas McCauley, Professor of Marine Biology at UC Santa Cruz and Director, Benioff Ocean Initiative, Ashlan Costeau, Co-Founder, Voyancy Ventures, Nishan Degnarain, Chair of World Economic Forum's Special Initiative on the Ocean, and Wendy Schmidt, Co-Founder of Schmidt Ocean Initiative. Let's listen in.

The Power of Motivation
31:31
What motivates you? In this episode, we'll explore two different stories of motivation. Michael Tubbs, mayor of Stockton, California dives into his upbringing, his path from council member to mayor, and sharing the same name with a white supremacist. We'll also hear from Army Major Lisa Jaster -- a soldier, an engineer, a wife and mother, and a trailblazer. One of only three women to graduate from the first integrated United States Army Ranger program—one of the most difficult combat training courses in the world—Lisa was the first female Army Reserve officer to become a Ranger. What motivated her? What drove her to never quit?
Aug 23, 2018
Authentic Leadership
26:19
At Salesforce, equality is a core value of everything we do. And part of supporting that value is by providing our Ohana with the channels and opportunities to bring their whole selves to work. One way for leaders to encourage equality is through their own authenticity. Leading with authenticity is something many of us are passionate about. There are traditional views of leadership: loud, aggressive, not being too nice, but this assumes that there is only one way to lead. There is no one path to leadership. Today, authenticity among our leaders is being valued more than ever.

Henson and Natalie Portman for their take on making room for equality. We'll discover more of their respective journeys for asking for more in Hollywood and beyond.

Technology for Good
25:56
It's no secret that technology is a huge part of our everyday lives. We use apps and smartphones to track the weather, figure out when the next train is coming, and read up on the latest news from around the world and from our friends and family on social media. Recently, there seems to be something of a negative reaction to the pervasiveness of technology in our lives. Many of us are now questioning if technology is actually good for us. Does technology ultimately lend us tools for good? What are some of the ways that technology is being used for good? True and unambiguous good in the world. Can AI do this? And if so, how? Dr. Vivienne Ming, Founder and Chair of Socos Labs, takes a look at how new technologies are accelerating changes in the medical world. Hear examples of technology that's truly changing lives, inside and outside of hospitals and in the global refugee crisis. Ashton Kutcher, actor, turned tech investor and enthusiast, came to Dreamforce '17 to talk about Thorn, a company he co-founded in 2009. Thorn drives technology innovation to fight trafficking and the sexual exploitation of children and adults. Thorn partners across the tech industry, government, and NGOs, leveraging technology to combat predatory behavior, accelerate victim identification, and protect vulnerable children. Take a listen to how Kutcher is using tech for good. Technology is rapidly changing our future. One of the ways is through the technology users of tomorrow. In the last segment, hear how The Girl Scouts of America are looking ahead to utilize digital tools for their young members around the country. Sylvia Acevedo, CEO of Girl Scouts of America, touches on how the organization is empowering young girls to become technology super users, and to use tech to become the change makers of tomorrow.

The Fight for Equal Pay Continues
55:08
Last Dreamforce, we held the second annual Women & Equality Summit. This day was dedicated to topics focused on economic equality, diversity, inclusion, the role business leaders can play, and more. Salesforce is an active supporter of equality and we were excited to continue the conversation with visionary speakers and real, honest conversations. Some of the brightest, most forward-thinking, and driven leaders joined us from government, business, media, sports and beyond. This episode is Part 2 of our coverage of the Women & Equality Summit. Be sure to go back and listen to last week's episode if you missed Part 1. A new movie, Battle of the Sexes, focuses on the iconic tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. This new movie is bringing King's push for equality and activism for Equal Pay back into the spotlight. King is known for championing a woman's right to equal pay. In this episode, we're revisiting some of our conversations with her and other Equal Pay pioneers. A lot of progress has been made when it comes to closing the wage gap. But there is still a lot more to be done. In this insightful conversation from our Women & Equality Summit at Dreamforce 2016, we dove deep into how women today can rally together for equal pay, and how Salesforce is not only talking the talk when it comes to equal pay, but are walking the walk. We hear from Equal Pay for Equal Work Activist, Lilly Ledbetter, inspiration for President Obama's first act of legislation, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, as well as Cindy Robbins, EVP of Global Employee Success and Jenny Yang, Chair of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Women & Equality Summit Dreamforce '16
01:02:35
During Dreamforce 2016, we held the second annual Women & Equality Summit. This day was dedicated to topics focused on economic equality, diversity, inclusion, the role business leaders can play, and more. Salesforce is an active supporter for equality and we were excited to continue the conversation with visionary speakers and real, honest conversations. This episode is Part 1 of our coverage of the Women & Equality Summit. The word "leadership" is multi-faceted. For women today, it takes on meanings both at work and at home. We're looking at leadership lessons from two world-changing women when it comes to the changing definition of family and home life. Anne-Marie Slaughter is President of New America Think Tank and wrote one of the most popular articles in recent memory called "Why Women Still Can't Have It All." The struggle of women having it all goes beyond affordable childcare and maternity leave, she argues, and goes back to larger issues at work and in society. Joining Slaughter is Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO of GLAAD, a media monitoring organization founded by LGBTQ people in the media. Ellis's background and passion in media helped to champion her current activism and work for the LGBTQ community. Both women sat down with SVP of Salesforce, Leyla Seka, for an insightful panel of leadership lessons, family lessons, and how women are redefining their roles both at work and at home. What does it take to drive change and offer advice on breaking into the world of corporate boards? Having women in the boardroom is more important now than ever. In this panel, we will hear from a powerhouse group of women who have earned a boardroom seat. They have the amazing opportunity to impact change from the top. Sukinder Singh Cassidy serves on the boards of Ericsson and TripAdvisor. She is the founder of the Boardlist, a LinkedIn-like tool that matches peer-endorsed women with companies seeking board diversity. Clara Shih, CEO and Founder of Hearsay Social, serves on the board of Starbucks. Claire Hughes Johnson, COO of Stripe, sits on the board of Hallmark Cards, Inc. and as a Trustee of Milton Academy. In this panel, moderated by Forbes Staff Writer, Alex Konrad, we hear from these three inspiring women on life in the boardroom.

In this episode, we're sitting in on insights and conversations with some of the most inspiring and powerful CEOs in the world. We held the first Fortune CEO Series at Dreamforce '16. This exclusive series was designed as a way to get some of the most innovative company leaders together, in order to learn and grow from one another. The learnings and takeaways from these leaders are applicable to everyone, not only to those at the C-Level. We will be hearing from CEOs of legacy industry companies like General Motors and CEOs of growing disruptive startups. Ready to get some great ideas from some really bright minds? Let's get started. It once took Fortune 500 companies an average of 20 years to reach a billion-dollar valuation. Disruptive start-ups now reach that milestone in four years or less, while displacing longtime incumbents and reshaping the business landscape. How are these start-ups working with customers to shake up industry goliaths? Hear from four start-up CEOs about how they're blazing new trails to connect to customers in a whole new way, leveraging the latest technology to fuel rapid growth, and ultimately shape the future of the world. Simon Mulcahy, Chief Marketing Officer at Salesforce introduces us to the panelists. Digital transformation, globalization, and leadership. These are all at the forefront of every CEO's thinking. At the Fortune CEO Series, we held an idea-sparking dialogue on leadership. Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff and Mary Barra, Fortune's Most Powerful Woman of 2016 and CEO of General Motors, offer a candid view on leadership. They discuss customers, technology, and the role of business today in dialogue with moderator Alan Murray, Editor-in-Chief of Fortune.

Her powerful talk at the Day of Compassion sheds light on some of the adversities that children across the world face and how her project, through compassion, is providing their patients with hope and clarity. Take a listen. Elizabeth Gilbert is the bestselling author of ""Eat, Pray, Love,"" and ""Big Magic. Her books tap into the power of compassion in creativity. In this chat with Dr. Rich Fernandez, Gilbert talks about how to move past self-limiting thoughts and beliefs in order to unleash true creativity, innovation, and experience.

Part 1: Sustainable Development Goals

To quote Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, “The business of doing business is to improve the state of the world.” This principle guides us at Salesforce — as it does for many other companies. We can and should blend doing good with doing well. We not only believe in our products, but we believe in combining good business with good works. In this episode of Blazing Trails we are focusing on how businesses can make the world a better place, and Sustainable Development Goals - SDGs, the 17 major issues in the world that the United Nations has identified as necessary to fix. At the Salesforce World Tour in London, as part of the Fortune CEO Series, we sat down with three passionate, innovative, and inspiring guests, to discuss SDGs, and how we can improve the world by achieving these goals.

He has recently started Wikitribune, a crowdsourced site that will pay journalists to write real news. Wikitribune is trying to tackle fake news by using human contributors and journalists to stem the tide of false news, in part propagated by social media algorithms. This is part of his belief that social networks must have a social purpose. Gail Gallie, a business leader with a strong sense of social purpose, has worked for both advertisers and agencies, in the public and private sectors. Today she is the Co-Founder and CEO of Project Everyone. Project Everyone seeks to put the power of great communications behind the Sustainable Development Goals.
