Qlik.org – Expanding Data’s Ability to Influence Global Sustainability & Humanitarian Efforts

Over almost a decade now, Qlik has been leveraging our resources to help worthy organizations use data to improve lives throughout the world.

Corporate responsibility runs deep at Qlik - over that time we’ve:

  • Provided over $8M in software, training and support grants to nonprofits,
  • logged 50,000 staff volunteer hours globally, and
  • drove over $5M in financial support for humanitarian, disaster relief, global health and environmental causes to nonprofits.

It’s a program that’s been recognized multiple time for its global impact, including being named a Fast Company 2017 Top 10 Most Innovative Company for Social Good. Just this past calendar year our work with Medair tackling the Lebanon refugee crisis has received three industry awards: The Corporate Engagement Award for Most Innovative Collaboration, the Third Sector Award for Corporate Partnership of the Year and the Washington Technology Government Innovation Award as an Industry Innovator.It’s a program our entire company rightfully takes pride in.

Today we take the next step in our CR program’s evolution with the launch of Qlik.org – our corporate responsibility platform that builds on the great work we’ve accomplished over the years with leaders such as the United Nations, C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, Medair, WeSeeHope, Direct Relief and Team Rubicon. Qlik.org will help expand our ability to leverage software, culture and people to transform data into meaningful action across the globe, and help to create a sustainable, data literate world within all sectors of business and society.

"Over the last ten years, Qlik's ongoing support for WeSeeHope has truly underpinned our ability to develop and deliver sustainable programmes to help the most vulnerable. It is a genuine partnership with impact, and one that we are delighted is continuing to grow through an inspired Qlik network.”

– Mark Glen, CEO of WeSeeHope

At the same time, we’re launching the Qlik.org Impact Fund in partnership with Tides.org as the donor-advised fund administrator. This will help us streamline our gifting and grant development processes and attract high quality partners to help fund and expand the ecosystem. Qlik.org is also establishing an external advisory board made up of key customers and nonprofit partners to help us guide and advance our program to even more organizations around the globe.

We’re excited to share the next chapter in corporate responsibility at Qlik, and look forward to showcasing the real-world impact of our CR program ecosystem in the months and years to come.
