Following the same legacy and glory of #SalesforceSaturday which was founded by Stephanie Herrera in March 2015 with the idea of giving one day out of the week to embrace the skill set in Salesforce and share best practices with each other, we organized the same in GL Bajaj Institute of Management & Research for girl students on 3rd Feb 2018.
Noida Salesforce Groups have organized many workshops in GL Bajaj and keeping the #SFDC4Sudents framework in mind which was initiated by Vinay Chaturvedi, Noida WIT team (including Surbhi Narula, Payal Agarwal and Nida Khan) went there to evangelize all girls about Salesforce and introducing them to #SalesforceOhana.
We were so overwhelmed to see so many girls joining us even though they were not having any lectures/ classes that day.
#SalesforceSaturday was started with introduction to Cloud Computing, CRM and Salesforce by Surbhi Narula (Leader of Noida WIT). After that girls were so motivated by Stephanie’s talk (we wish it could belive but it was a video)and were all ready with their questions as Stephanie guided them.
Beautiful part was as they got to know that Stephanie will be joining #IndiaDreamin18 again they were super excited and wanted to meet her again.
Introduction to WIT and history of it was well taken up by Payal Agarwal (co- leader of Noida WIT) and girls were so amazed to hear the history of Salesforce Women In Tech.
After that Nida Khan (astonishing contributor of Noida Salesforce Groups) helped girls knowing the statistics of Women in Workforce and introduced them to Trailhead (amazing and fun way of learning Salesforce).
With help of kind faculties of GL Bajaj, we were able to get the girls move to Labs for creating their developer account on Salesforce and doing trailhead modules.
Special thanks to Madhu Gaur (HOD of CS/IT/MCA department) for promoting and inspiring girls to attend such sessions.
Also huge thanks to Karuna Tayal ,SikhaBaid , TanuDua who were not able to join us but helped us a lot.
Presence is not always necessary but support is,many thanks to Vinay Chaturvedi , Akash Mishra , Shailendra Sharma , Pritam Shekhawat for always being so supportive to WIT’s.
