MARQETR announced today that it has joined Pledge 1%, a global movement that encourages businesses to be a force for good and creates a new normal for companies of all sizes and stages to have a positive social impact through their business.
MARQETR is joining over 12,000 companies around the world who have committed to Pledge 1% of either their product, profit, equity, and/or staff time to a charity of their choosing. MARQETR is proud to announce its commitment to donate 1% of Staff Time to causes that they care about, driven largely through its 3 days of paid community service leave per year.
"I founded MARQETR to first and foremost, serve the underrepresented and underserved groups in the marketing industry, an industry that I've had the privilege to work in my entire career. I know first-hand what it’s like when you’re starting a career, making a career comeback, pivoting a career and starting a company, especially for a woman and a mother - you’re heads-down, working harder than you ever have in your life, and taking immense pride in even the smallest wins. Pledging to give back is a great way to express your gratitude in a tangible way to those who have supported you in your journey thus far. That's why I believe by joining Pledge 1%, it will bring MARQETR closer to our mission and purpose of becoming a force for good for the communities that we serve, and being able to build in Pledge 1% right from the beginning of our entrepreneurial journey. We look forward to be working with Pledge 1% and emulating some of the best practices for our social impact program."
Mawarni Adam, Founder and CEO of MARQETR.
