/ driving you mad, driving you crazy / Community / INTERVIEW: Martin Azzopardi on JOY Participation on the Salesforce Mardi Gras Float


David & Sue talk to Martin Azzopardi about the Salesforce volunteer program at JOY and about JOY’s participation on the Salesforce Mardi Gras Float this year. So watch out for JOY on the Salesforce float in this years Mardi Gras parade this Saturday with our very own Frock Hudson on board the float. You can watch it live streamed on Saturday or live in Sydney and then on Sunday on SBS.

And here’s some info about the project from the Salesforce website:

For the first time ever, Salesforce is partnering with the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and JOY 94.9 to help share Salesforce’s belief that creating a culture of Equality isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s also the smart thing to do. This is an incredible opportunity for Salesforce to showcase Equality as one of our core values and for our business, our employees and our community to be VISIBLE, VOCAL and PROUD.

We believe that everyone should be able to bring their authentic selves to work and we’re excited to embrace the fun, energy and excitement of the Mardi Gras parade with our employees, customers and partners.

We are proud to be partnering with JOY 94.9 who will be joining us and providing awesome tunes on our Mardi Gras float. JOY 94.9 are one of the amazing LGBTIQ+ organisations that we’re proud to support in APAC. Our employees in Melbourne volunteer by digitising JOY’s extensive music library and recording their community announcements.
