At LinkedIn for Good we believe that everyone deserves a shot at economic opportunity, and our team is committed to making that vision a reality through our work with communities around the world that face obstacles which limit their chances in life.

Over the past 12 months, we've worked with hundreds of thousands of individuals, helped nonprofit organizations scale their impact, and mobilized our members to make a difference in their communities. Below is just a snapshot of some of that work. 

Our Mission

Talent is equally distributed, but access to opportunity is not. LinkedIn's social impact team, LinkedIn for Good (LIFG), creates access to economic opportunity for underserved communities by helping them build networks that will open doors, acquire the skills needed to get ahead, and get the jobs they want. Our work in 2017 largely focused on three specific groups; youth, veterans and refugees. Find more details on those programs below.

 

Youth

Thanks to our Signature partnerships and LinkedIn Coaches program we engaged thousands of young people around the world, helping untapped talent to build their professional brands and connect to networks through LinkedIn training and mentorship programs.

Veterans

We strongly believe in the potential for America’s veterans to transform their communities and our economy upon their transition from military service. LinkedIn for Veterans connected veteran talent to the tools and networks they need to connect to hundreds of veteran-hiring employers.

Refugees

Through our Welcome Talent program, we partnered with nonprofit organizations and government agencies to connect skilled refugees to jobs in their new home countries through mentorship initiatives, skills training, and exposure to employers.

Employee Volunteering

We create opportunities for LinkedIn employees to engage in social impact by contributing their skills and time to support their communities. At a local level, each LinkedIn office partners with local employment-focused nonprofits to help underserved individuals get a strong start on their professional journeys. Programs include but are not limited to: speed mentoring, LinkedIn training sessions, and skills-based coaching.
