Rubicon Project Pays it Forward

Last week was an exciting week at Rubicon Project! We participated in two events that enabled us to use the power of our people and technology to positively impact our communities.

On March 8, International Women’s Day, two of our D.C.-based team members joined Michelle Obama at Union Market as she marked the one-year anniversary of Let Girls Learn, Rubicon Project will be powering ad campaigns throughout 2016 to drive awareness for Let Girls Learn. “I’m very proud that our company sponsors such an initiative,” said Doctor Hongyan Jing, director of data sciences, who attended the event. “Having access to quality education has certainly changed my world. I hope more girls will have the opportunity to go to school and realize their dreams!”

Later in the week, we welcomed two computer science students from Pasadena City College into our Playa Vista headquarters for a job shadow opportunity with our IT group. This opportunity came through our involvement with LA HI-TECH, a coalition of community colleges, public high schools, skills providers, and technology companies working together to build educational pathways and programming that lead students to jobs in the tech industry.
