Every year, Autodesk employees in multiple offices lead activities that educate and inspire fellow employees, including vendor fairs with environmentally-focused agencies, volunteer community clean-ups, and the collection of gently-used items for charitable donations.
Employee volunteers also support environmental causes through participation in such events as recycling drives held four times a year at the Montreal office, or the "Run for the Seals" in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Autodesk employees support education by participating in back-to-school drives for school supplies, and organizing or volunteering at educational events.
Each year, the San Francisco office hosts Techbridge hands-on learning events for school-age girls. Through national nonprofit Spark, several employees partner with underserved middle school students to provide workplace apprenticeships.
Autodesk employees have helped underserved children for many years by supporting social service organizations, and volunteering with underserved youth.
The "Autodesk aktiv" group in Munich works with the "Münchner Kindlheim," an institution for child and youth services. The volunteer team takes the kids on outings to zoos, museums, airports, sports events, and other fun activities.
In the Manchester, New Hampshire office, employees have worked with Families in Transition to help individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
Employees regularly hold food drives and participate in food packaging and sorting events at different food banks. Employees have also supported health-related causes by participating in events and making donations.
Toronto-based employees regularly volunteer at the Daily Bread Food Bank, Toronto's largest food bank, and more than 100 employees recently participated in the San Francisco AIDS Walk, raising thousands of dollars in donations that were then matched by Autodesk.
