About the program

Our vision for this initiative is to remove financial barriers that inhibit women and nonbinary individuals in achieving their Salesforce architecture career goals.

 

We recognise that some talented individuals face unique challenges, such as due to their global location and disadvantageous exchange rate to USD, caring responsibilities necessitating part time work, domestic abuse (including financial abuse), and more. By providing opportunities for aspiring architects to excel in their profession, we aim to foster a more diverse and inclusive community of Salesforce architects.

The scholarship program has been founded based on these core values:

If You Can See It, You Can Be It: We firmly believe that representation matters. Women and nonbinary individuals in the Salesforce community benefit from having role models who share their background and experiences. By showcasing successful architects who are like them, we'll inspire the next generation of trailblazers to pursue their own dreams of a career in Salesforce architecture.

A Hand Up, Not a Handout: Our scholarship program is all about providing a helping hand to people who demonstrate their commitment to put in the work it takes to become a successful Salesforce architect. 

Celebrate Success: At Ladies Be Architects, we believe in recognizing and celebrating the achievements of women and nonbinary folks in the Salesforce community. Every success story is a testament to that individual's determination and hard work - we want to make noise and celebrate!

Leveraging Existing Programs: We understand that there are already existing programs designed to support your growth into a career in Salesforce architecture. Rather than reinventing the wheel, we strive to collaborate and build upon these resources, ensuring that our beneficiaries have access to a broad spectrum of opportunities.

Eligibility Criteria

The Ladies Be Architects Scholarship Program is available to women and nonbinary individuals who meet the following criteria:

  • At least 3 years of experience in a hands-on role related to Salesforce.

  • Currently not employed by Salesforce, or a Salesforce consulting / Systems Integrator partner company.

  • Aspiring to become, or improve their skills and credibility as a Salesforce architect.

  • Facing financial barriers to achieving their goals in Salesforce architecture.

Assistance Available

The assistance we can provide will be dependent on your progress in your Salesforce architect journey, and the level of readiness and commitment you can demonstrate. We'll work with you to decide exactly how we can help you in your individual situation, and we'll be encouraging you to break down your big dreams into bite-size chunks. For successful candidates, we will fund a range of activities from Salesforce architect certification vouchers, to Trailhead Academy courses, CTA study programs and CTA 602 or board review attempts.

How to Apply

Click here to apply. You'll be asked to provide your personal information, work experience, a statement of purpose, and your goals for their future in Salesforce architecture.

Selection Process

The scholarship selection committee, comprising experienced professionals from the Salesforce community, will carefully review all applications. Shortlisted candidates will be contacted within 4-6 weeks of their application to arrange an interview to discuss their aspirations and commitment, and what assistance they need. Successful candidates will be notified and funding distributed commencing in January 2024.
