I am thrilled to work for a company with a big and inspiring vision of creating economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce. To achieve our vision, LinkedIn fosters a culture of transformation — of the world, the company, ourselves. One of the ways we bring this to life is through LinkedIn for Good’s Employee Transformation Grant program.
As Chair of the LinkedIn for Good for Employees Grants program, I am honored to announce this year’s winners. These grant winners, chosen from more than 74 applicants representing our offices around the world, have been awarded $ 3,000 USD grants in support of their efforts to transform themselves, their families, their communities, and/or the world.
This year’s Transformation Grant winners are embarking on some truly amazing efforts – from helping family members afflicted with challenging medical issues to creating economic opportunities for the poor in West Africa to delivering educational programs to students in Cambodia. These stories are personal, heartwarming and inspiring. I hope you will be as moved by them as I have been.
