99% of Vidyard employees volunteered their time, providing skill-based services to nonprofits spanning food banks, hospitals, and children’s services
Vidyard, the leading video platform for businesses, released the results of its 2021 Community Social Impact Program, showcasing the company’s ongoing commitment to giving back. In 2021, Vidyard’s program focused on two pillars: equity in STEM education and essential community support. These pillars bring programming to underserved communities and advocate for better community access to food, shelter, and healthcare.
“While 2021’s efforts were still largely virtual, we’re proud of how our employees donated more of their time than ever,” said Laura Galbraith, director of community at Vidyard. “We’re fully committed to supporting the communities we live in and are grateful for the relationships we’re developing and for the opportunity to help expand access to vital initiatives like Girls in STEM.”
