Partnerships & Collaborations

Social media has the power to connect people and bring us together. We are proud to work with partners and nonprofits to help them leverage the power of social media for good. Some of our efforts include:

ACCELERATING GENDER EQUALITY

In 2020, we partnered with World Woman Foundation to launch the Digital Gender Diversity
Impact Report and World Woman Hour, a socially powered global movement that aims
to mentor one million women by 2030.

ADVANCING CORPORATE SUSTAINABILITY

We work with leading organizations to help us
achieve our goals in creating a sustainable company.






Following 2020’s catastrophic bushfires in Australia, Hootsuite and our Sydney employees led various
initiatives to help support local efforts, rebuild Australian forests, and restore native habitat vital for wildlife.

    2021 through One Tree Planted, in honour
    of every Hootsuite employee

  • organizations donated to following a
    fundraiser led by our Sydney employees
    that was matched by Hootsuite

With the help of Green Standards, we found a sustainable solution to reducing corporate
waste, like furniture and equipment, as we shifted away from our offices due to the COVID-19
pandemic.

  • 100%

    of equipment recycled or donated

  • $19,515

    of in-kind charitable donations

CREATING SUSTAINABLE EMPLOYMENT

Since 2019, StepUp.One has been using the Hootsuite platform as part of their program to reskill refugees in
mature UNHCR camps, teach them social media marketing, and connect them with opportunities that pay.
