Athleteforce: From Elite Careers in Sports to Elite Careers in Technology

By Muna Ebongalame December 14, 2022

Nelson Mandela once said, “sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does.” 

Whether it provides a safe place for children who live in at-risk communities or creates pride in the hearts of armchair athletes, sports can be a powerful tool for good.

That’s where AthleteForce comes in. AthleteForce is a free Salesforce program for UK-based retired or retiring elite or professional athletes looking to transition to a full-time career in the technology industry. The program provides up to 8 weeks of training and self-paced learning, mentoring, and in-person event opportunities. It’s a “playbook” for anyone looking to build the knowledge and skills needed for a career at Salesforce, in the Salesforce partner ecosystem, or in our global customer community.
