Samasource honors Getty Images with Impact Award

November 4, 2013 | By Peggy Willett | Community

On Nov. 2 in San Francisco, Samasource honored Getty Images CTO Steve Heck and Senior Director Search Strategy, Mary Forster, with an Impact Award.  We’re so grateful.

The award recognizes the positive impact our partnership with the nonprofit is having on the lives of their employees.

Through Microwork™, Samasource teaches technology skills to educated but very poor people in many parts of the world. The work, and the living wage employees earn through it, helps them become qualified for other technology jobs, and lifts them and their families out of poverty.

This video reveals more about our partnership and how we work together now.  We also look forward to expanding our Samasource partnership in the future, because we are inspired by how Samasource leverages the simple power and dignity of work to change lives in positive ways.
