Bloomberg’s global education engagement and mentoring program, Bloomberg Startup, offers a wide range of activities designed and led by our employees in collaboration with our nonprofit partners to support academic achievement and prepare students for further education and careers, especially in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics). In 2017, Bloomberg’s mentor network grew to 3,650 employees in more than 40 cities around the world with a few first-time cities, including Rome with Junior Achievement, Hoboken with the Cities of Service program, and the launch of a financial journalism postgraduate diploma in Bangalore in partnership with the Asian College of Journalism; some courses are taught by Bloomberg News journalists. In 2017, Startup awarded 35 scholarships for the inaugural class of the Bloomberg Startup Scholars program to provide opportunities to gain a higher education for 35 high-achieving, low-income students globally in partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies. The scholarships are funded thanks to 110 employee volunteers who designated their Dollars for Your Hours to the program. In 2017, we created a pilot career and workplace readiness program with the Fortune Society, establishing a fellowship for justiceinvolved individuals returning to the workforce. The Bloomberg-Fortune Work Fellows Program consists of a 12-week full-time position at Bloomberg providing 11 Fortune Society alumni with the opportunity to develop professional skills, expand their professional network, and build confidence.
