Cindy Robbins, President and Chief People Officer at Salesforce, is leaving the company after 13 years. At Salesforce, she oversaw recruitment and the company’s global business partners. She famously convinced CEO Marc Benioff to correct its gender pay gap and the company eventually invested over $10 million to do so.

In a statement to Fortune, Robbins said: "I’m ready to take a pause and advise organizations, advocate for gender equality, and spend time with my family. I’m looking forward to the next chapter.”

Robbins has served as Chief People Officer for almost 2 years and was previously EVP, Global Employee Success at Salesforce. Before joining Salesforce, she worked for BEA Systems, Openwave, and Plumtree. She received a Bachelor of Science from Santa Clara University.
