Here’s how to watch our live interview with Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff

Kara Swisher asked him if he really wanted to buy Twitter.

Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff is what you might call a “woke CEO”: He recently led a group of CEOs and business leaders in opposing state legislation that discriminated against LGBTQ communities, and instituted a company-wide salary assessment to ensure that men and women were being paid equally for comparable work.

He also reached the $10 billion mark faster than any other enterprise software company. A 35-year veteran of the software industry — he worked 13 years at Oracle, and before that, at Apple — Benioff is one of the pioneers of cloud computing, founding Salesforce in 1999 with a cloud-based technology model, a pay-as-you-go business model and an integrated corporate philanthropy model.

Watch our live interview with him at our Code Enterprise conference in San Francisco, Calif., starting at tonight at 8 pm ET / 5 pm PT.
