At Urban Science, we’re known for tapping the power of our unrivaled data and technology – and our proven scientific processes and methodologies to help automotive manufacturers and dealers, and the advertising technology firms that support them, achieve clarity and business certainty in even the most ambiguous market conditions. But we’re also known for our team’s far-reaching impact in the communities our global team members call home. Whether through our commitment to help underrepresented talent blaze new trails in STEM or empowering our team members to use their 12 hours of paid volunteerism to support important causes across our 21 global office locations, we’re investing – and invested – in the success of the people and places that surround us.
In November 2022, Urban Science announced its second-annual Community Giving Grant Program with a call for entries, requesting employees submit a nonprofit of their choice for consideration to receive a $1,000 microgrant awarded in their honor. We’re humbled and grateful to say this year, this initiative reached new heights! Thirty organizations were nominated, and after the list was finalized, Urban Scientists across the globe voted for the top 10 to determine which would receive $1,000 microgrants.
The voting period is now closed, and we’re pleased to announce our winners:
