At INVISR we are committed to giving back to the community we serve. In partnership with Mary Scotton (@rockchick322004), Developer Evangelist at Salesforce, INVISR sponsored a holiday “morning of inspiration” breakfast at Grace Institute in Downtown Manhattan. We visited the women of Grace Institute with the goal of providing encouragement, helpful tips, and resources for managing the job search process and periods of change.
Grace Institute is a nonprofit organization that empowers underserved women, ages 18-65 in the New York area to achieve employment and economic self-sufficiency. Within a supportive and structured environment, Grace Institute provides job-skills training, counseling, placement services and continuous learning opportunities that lead to upwardly mobile employment.
As new graduates of the program, many of the women at the event were actively engaged in the job search process with the assistance of the career placement services office at Grace Institute. INVISR attended not only to help lead the event, but to share information about Salesforce, CRM systems in general, and how to learn more about Salesforce using the Trailhead program.
We met some amazing women at the event and heard their stories about how Grace Institute has helped them to make transitions in their life and into successful careers. Leaving the event, we felt inspired and motivated to continue our work to empower organizations like Grace Institute to use the power of the Salesforce platform to make the world a better place.
