In early March, our Data Solutions team came together to support the fight against hunger alongside Rise Against Hunger, a non-profit dedicated to helping distressed communities and contending with emergencies by providing nourishment to people in need.

Organized by Senior Operations Manager Angella Kim, Jacobs teammates – joined by senior leaders including EVP & President of Divergent Solutions Shannon Miller, SVP of Technology & Innovative Solutions Julie Chang and SVP and General Manager of Cyber & Intelligence Solutions Gwen Clavon – pitched in to package over 14,000 meals.

"Today a group of Jacobs employees and family members came together to help many lives across the globe in support of the nonprofit Rise Against Hunger,” Gwen Clavon shared in reflection of the event. “What a blessing it is to work with so many awesome people who know how important it is to do anything we can to be the change and make a difference in the world.”

Did you know that Jacobs offers paid volunteering time as part of our wellbeing programs and benefits?

Our paid volunteering time is just one way we’re driving a sense of belonging. We maximize our collective positive impact by measuring and tracking our employee giving, as well as our corporate citizenship and philanthropic activities.
