How we’re shaping what’s next through social impact.
Amplify, unify and lead by example
Momentive Together is how we put our values into action through philanthropic and community-minded commitments. At its heart is our belief that together we can drive real progress for equity, sustainability and social justice – to help improve the world we currently live in and shape a better future for everyone.
We are invested in amplifying individual voices, particularly those that have historically been silenced. We aim to empower communities, increase diversity and create more opportunities for people to thrive.
With Momentive Together, we’re acting on our convictions to spark meaningful change.
Chief Diversity and Social Impact Officer
"Social Impact, diversity and sustainability are words we all use to explain or define justice, access and equity. I'm proud that Momentive Together is committed to creating one approach that requires us to view our efforts through these multiple lenses. The world needs us to have as many vantage points as possible because creating a just and equitable world depends on it."
Our beliefs guide our commitments
In our materiality assessment, we survey our employees, customers, executives and more to determine which causes are most important to us as a company. The graphic below shows the individual issues that resonate with people at Momentive (shown as ‘Impact to the company’) and external stakeholders (shown as ‘Importance to stakeholders’).

Together, we can make an impact
Our goal is to continually improve what we do for our communities and the environment. Our efforts are centered around three pillars that we believe are imperative for a better world.
Tech companies like ours need to invest in future leaders. All students deserve access to educational programmes and resources that will empower them to learn and grow. We pledge to expand opportunities for low-income and underserved early education and secondary students by supporting programmes that provide high-value, equitable education.
Reshaping the workforce
Marginalised communities need meaningful access to employment pipelines, mentorship and career development opportunities. We want to help dismantle and reimagine inequitable systems, while ensuring that everyone has what they need to succeed.
It’s up to us to minimise our organisational and individual impact on the environment. From our real estate and supply chain to our travel decisions, we’re committed to monitoring our greenhouse gas emissions and reducing our carbon footprint.
Our legacy for good
Before we were Momentive Together, we were SurveyMonkey for Good. We’re proud of our legacy of corporate philanthropy and the continued impact of our programmes, partnerships and strategic giving initiatives.
SurveyMonkey Contribute has raised more than $15 million for causes such as social justice, animal welfare, education and more. For every survey that respondents complete, we donate 50 cents to the nonprofit of their choice.
The Listen4Good programme helps nonprofits build high-quality feedback loops with clients, make strategic decisions, deliver services and partner more closely with the communities they serve.
Our surveys connect Pledge 1% companies with resources that will help them donate time, equity, product and profit. We’ve taken our own pledge to give back and are proud to promote corporate philanthropy.

Karina Cerdan (she/her)
Programme manager, DEI & social impact
“I’m inspired by the opportunity to harness the power of curiosity and inclusive leadership to reshape a more equitable future with the unique blend of data insights and human perspectives that the solutions and people at Momentive make possible.”
Saili Willis (she/her)
"It’s energising to know that working at Momentive gives me opportunities to effect change and to empower others to do the same. I feel encouraged to think creatively and with curiosity, and feel I have the opportunity to play a significant role in shaping the future.”
Antoine Andrews (he/him)
Chief diversity and social impact officer
“At Momentive, we’re positioned at the intersection of people and data. Our ability to not only capture experiential data, but our expertise in uncovering the stories that data holds, make us a unique force for systemic transformation around the world.”
Zach Nunn (he/him)
DEI & social impact director
“The ‘why?’ of this work for me is rooted in amplifying the voices often unheard and advocating for them by dismantling and imagining new systems that foster equity. ‘Why now?’ is an easy question to answer – ask yourself, 'why not?'
Jaime Barclay (she/her)
Social impact lead
"Our social impact directly addresses diversity, equity and inclusion. By aligning our people, profit and product with our uniquely data-driven approach to social impact, we can break down social and racial inequities in society.”
Prioritising diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI)
At Momentive, we believe in doing everything in our power to create a more diverse, inclusive and equitable world. As a company and as a community, meeting our DEI goals is just as important as meeting our financial goals.
From our recruiting strategy and product philosophy to our partnerships and strategic giving, we work hard to ensure that DEI is embedded in everything we do. We aim to be tech’s most inclusive workplace and to demonstrate exactly how companies can be a force for good. Our goals are big, and we know our work will never be done, but we have confidence that together we can shape a better future for everyone.Learn more
