Lyft is excited to team up with First Lady Michelle Obama to support Let Girls Learn, an initiative encouraging communities around the world to reduce barriers keeping adolescent girls from completing their education and pursuing broader goals.
Lyft will be joining forces with our community of drivers and passengers to drive donations to the program throughout the year. Lyft has a strong track record of supporting charities through our tip-matching program, which donates funds when passengers tip their drivers.
Lyft has broken gender barriers as a tech company with nearly 50% of our leadership team and a majority of our passengers (60%) being women and the highest percentage of women drivers in the ridesharing industry (30%). We know that strong female-driven companies start with equal education for girls, so we are thrilled to support Let Girls Learn.
