Ever feel like women are underrepresented in tech in India? You're not wrong. According to the World Economic Forum, as of 2023, women make up only 27% of India’s STEM workforce.

Here at Salesforce, we’re trying to change that. We recognize that more women in tech means more diverse perspectives and innovative approaches to business challenges. When women thrive in technology, it benefits everyone — customers, colleagues, and our communities.


That's where the first ever Salesforce Trailblazing Women Coding Challenge comes in. This isn't just any coding contest — it's an opportunity for women coders in India to show off their skills, smash stereotypes ... and win some incredible prizes.
