Submitted by Common Impact
Cheryl Timoney, Salesforce.org’s Senior Director of Tech for Social Impact, joins Pro Bono Perspectives host and Common Impact CEO Danielle Holly to discuss Salesforce.org’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, including ongoing pro bono support for nonprofit and education partners. Cheryl reflects on how this moment in time has made clear the power of virtual volunteering, both as a disaster response tool and a democratic way to engage employees for good.
Cheryl also talks about Salesforce.org’s new endeavor Impact Labs, how her cross-sector career led to her current role at the helm of Salesforce's social impact work, what the “new normal” is doing to shift perceptions of work-life balance and why it's more important than ever to appreciate everyday victories.
