For this next podcast episode, we sit down with Alejandra Teran, a featured Dreamforce speaker, Trailhead Ranger and former CoE leader for Salesforce giants like Deloitte, Freddie Mac and Teleperformance, to discuss diversity and inclusion within the Salesforce ecosystem.
Listen as we cover everything from challenges faced as an LGBTQ, Latinx female climbing the ranks to the struggles faced in becoming a hiring manager and industry leader. Alejandra talks through her own experience and provides some helpful tips for both managers and candidates alike looking to create an inclusive and collaborative Salesforce Center of Excellence. Also don’t miss out on hearing what’s next for Alejandra as she discusses giving back to the Salesforce Community by leading a CoE bootcamp to help leaders maximize their ROI!
Here are the links to Alexandra's site as well as the resources mentioned in the episode:
10X Cloud Value - You bought Salesforce, now get your money's worth! Helping Salesforce customers accelerate getting the highest value by applying the principles, strategies and tools from best-in-class Salesforce COEs.

This series is part of a wider community initiative, peer-led, for SFDC Tech/COE Leaders to connect with each other on the machinations of successful user adoption, shared best practices, and learnings about roles, processes, and tech used in such teams. We don’t always get to be connected to peers in the Salesforce Community, COE leaders can find themselves operating like islands, in their own businesses and separated from others. This is a window in on how Salesforce is run, elsewhere.
