It’s official – we’re an award-winning programme! We’re thrilled to share the news that we’ve been presented with an Equality and Diversity Award from Sage Foundation

We’ve been working hard to empower more and more mums back in to work within the Salesforce ecosystem for nearly two year. Since that launch date in November 2016, we’ve supported 66 mums (and dads) through the programme. To say that we’re thrilled to be recognised for our commitment to equality and diversity is a understatement and we’d like to extend a huge thank you to everyone at Sage Foundation who nominated and voted for Supermums!! We’ve always been supported by the team at Sage Foundation, and were thrilled to be recognised in their nonprofit awards, receiving the most nominations for supporting equality and diversity, a cause that is at the heart of what we do. Working closely with organisations like Sage and Salesforce, we champion equality in the ecosystem and ask the community to help us deliver on our Salesforce Supermums promise by supporting and hiring our mums (and dads). Our goal is to support 200 mums back to work by 2020 and we were delighted to hear from Dreamforce this week that 48% of Salesforce Admins are women! Increasingly, we’re seeing that more and more employers in the Salesforce ecosystem are making the most of this new talent base. Our Talent Match department successfully places our Supermums into ISV’s, Consultancies, and companies, and this helps to fund our work. Here’s what some of these employers are saying
“Thank you again for introducing me to your wonderful candidates. They are all excellent and it’s certainly making our recruitment decision a very tough one!” Taskfeed “We were looking for a Part time Salesforce Project Manager. In a very short time our Supermum has understood both the teams needs and the strengths and limitations of our existing system and has started identifying and implementing practical ways to have a huge impact on our organisation.” School for Social Entrepreneurs “We needed a hybrid skill skillset to fill this role and had interviewed several experienced Salesforce Administrators alongside Gillian. She had not only a growing Salesforce skillset, but a wealth of experience from previous positions that we felt could transfer neatly into this new role. Since joining she’s been a great asset to our team.” Payonomy
