Salesforce has announced the reimagined Trailblazer Community by integrating Trailhead, a free online learning platform, and its online community into one unified platform. The revamped Trailblazer community is available now, providing a place for everyone to build new skills, learn from colleagues and experts, and connect to job opportunities in the Salesforce ecosystem.
With the powerful combination of both these platforms, the company delivers a seamless learning experience by providing the ability to learn from other trailblazers anywhere, anytime.
Salesforce breaks down silos to make it easier to share knowledge, ask and answer questions, and gain guidance on key topics to accelerate learning and career development by introducing the revamped trailblazer community.
Agile Coach, Salesforce MVP and Trailblazer Ines Garcia, said: “The Trailblazer Community is a place where people from across the world – and all backgrounds – come together to learn and connect, transform their careers continually, and solve business problems. The Trailblazer Community has had an immeasurable impact on my life, providing me and millions of others with the necessary tools and support to learn new skills for the future.”
New features in the Trailblazer community include:
Today Page: A personalized home page that brings together the Trailblazer community feed, ongoing training, and recommended Trailhead modules in one place.
Learning Panel: Displays relevant Trailhead learning content on the Topics and Questions page and offers learning modules that match your conversations and questions.
Trailhead GO Community: Brings the Trailblazer Community to mobile via Trailhead GO, Trailhead’s free mobile app. Group members can post questions for quick answers and access direct messages to contact Trailblazer in the community.
As part of Salesforce’s ongoing commitment to filling gaps in opportunity for young people, the company also announced a new $700,000 grant to its long-term nonprofit partner, Year Up. As a result, Salesforce’s total financial support to nonprofit organizations is over $9.2 million, and the company’s total human resource development grant is $30 million.
This grant will support Year Up’s work to train and place young adults facing high-paying and high-demand career barriers and help employers meet their talent needs. Salesforce’s commitment goes beyond grants – the company hosts nearly 700 Year Up interns across the United States and partners with Year Up to develop sustainable talent pathways for the Salesforce ecosystem.
