Gerald Chertavian is founder and CEO at Year Up, one of the fastest growing non-profits in the nation that helps urban young adults develop technical and professional skills that they apply during a six-month internship at a company. We had the opportunity to sit down with Chertavian following a presentation he gave to executive attendees at Workday Rising to discuss his passion for building bridges that lead more people out of poverty and into successful careers.
Giving back is woven into the DNA of our culture at Workday, and that extends to our annual Workday Rising conference. Carrie Varoquiers shares how Workday Rising attendees can join us in giving back by participating in the Opportunity Onramps movement, and reveals plans for an endowment from Workday to benefit the people of Las Vegas.
At Workday Rising in Chicago, October 9-12, we'll be supporting Year Up, a non-profit organization that’s having a huge impact on the lives of underserved young adults throughout the U.S. Read on to learn how Workday Rising attendees can get involved.
