For coaching Salesforce to aim high
The Most Creative People in business 2018

Suzanne DiBianca is an executive vice president and chief philanthropy officer at Salesforce, a cloud computing company known for inventing the “integrated philanthropy” model of business practice. She cofounded and led Salesforce’s nonprofit division, which pioneered the concept for Pledge 1%, an initiative that encourages companies to give 1% of employee time, product, or equity to charity, although Salesforce does all three. She has also helped shape the company’s grant-making strategy, which includes giving to educational groups like Black Girls Code and Coder Dojo, and future workforce development efforts like YearUp and Genesys Works with the goal of building more talent, opportunity, and diversity within the tech sector.

Under DiBianca’s leadership in 2017, Salesforce met its goal to totally offset carbon emissions 33 years ahead of schedule, and launched a $50 million venture fund to invest in companies using its technology in new ways that boost workforce development, equality, sustainability, and improvement in the social sector.
