Zen In Tech is a one-of-a-kind guided interactive experience with resident expert Sheldon Callahan: a Tech Evangelist, former Salesforce and current Robert Half Employee, three-time Dreamforce Speaker, and Shaolin Master. It consists of 2 weekly live online classes in a six-week course. The students have access to class recordings, course materials, and community during and after the class's completion. Students have weekly assignments and system administration homework individually reviewed and checked by the certifying instructor.

Students add value to their resumes through learning Salesforce Administration and earn points on Salesforce's site Trailhead; and establish, develop and maintain three simple practices: 

  • Mindfulness and body awareness in the usage, learning, and adoption of technology in life and business. 

  • Valuing people over technology and wisdom over knowledge in life and business.

  • Find sustainable healthy paths to learn and use technology in daily life and work situations.

The original pilot program featured eight students of color, over 50% of them women, and seven of whom completed the program and received program certification in the presence of the VP of the Trailblazer Community and Trailhead Evangelism at Salesforce, Leah McGowen. Two of our graduates have already gone on to work in professional Salesforce technical roles, including Accenture, and the other hired as a Salesforce Administrator for Deep Root Center for Spiritual Studies.
