In the CIO Magazine article "LinkedIn and Year Up partner for a more diverse IT future" by Sarah K. White:

LinkedIn is actively promoting social impact among its employees by collaborating with the nonprofit Year Up to empower young adults from underrepresented communities in the field of IT.

This partnership, established in 2011, has grown significantly, with LinkedIn hiring around 105 Year Up interns. Year Up provides a year-long career readiness program, with six months of skill development followed by a six-month internship. LinkedIn's involvement includes two programs: LinkedIn Coaches, training employees to engage in career discussions and offer professional advice, and InDays, monthly events allowing employees to invest in themselves and their communities.
