Global Citizen spoke to the people making an impact in their communities every day.

When it comes to community impact, there is no act too small. Even the smallest gestures can inspire waves of positive change. And for some, that starts in the workplace. 

Dan Mansperger, inspired by his employer World Wide Technology (WWT), decided to impact his community by founding a summer camp to empower young women with the vital technology skills needed to enter the workforce. 

Mansperger, who works at WWT as a lead Salesforce architect, said WWT's dedication to driving positive social change "opened [his] eyes to recommitting to community involvement." 

Mansperger is also a proud Global Citizen, having attended the 2022 Global Citizen Festival in Central Park with his children alongside thousands of Global Citizens, activists, world leaders, and philanthropists uniting to end poverty in all its forms. 

As part of the Global Citizen Festival campaign, WWT signed on to the Race to Zero campaign to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. 

For Mansperger, the event highlighted WWT's commitment to bettering communities on a local and global scale. 

"We all have something to give back to the community," said Mansperger.
