Industry social purpose organisation, UnLtd has today announced its second annual intake of the Ambassadors for Good program.

Following the success of the inaugural program, the second call out for ambassadors saw over 75 people across the industry apply to the program, all united by a passion to make a difference.
“Just like last year, we were overwhelmed by the interest in the program and the incredible individuals that applied,” said UnLtd CEO, Chris Freel.
“There is so much talent and passion to do good in our industry and choosing only 18 ambassadors was incredibly hard. It’s inspiring to know that there are so many people who give a s**t across our industry and we thank everyone who applied.”
The 2022 UnLtd Ambassadors for Good are: Aidan Harper (Cartology), Ayesha Shahi (Yahoo), Cassandra Salter (IAS), Chloe do Rosario (Canva), Chris Murphy (The Hallway), Dan Flanagan (Meta), Danielle Galipienzo (Initiative), Gemma Harriss (Zenith), Harleen Sodhi (Carat), Jane Qian (The Trade Desk), Marina Mitrevski (The Iconic), Marzia Finzi (oOh!), Olivia Scott (Kaimera), Owen Kelly (Nine), Phil Hammond (Adgile), Sam Woods (ACM), Sinead Roarty (Godmother Creative Consultancy) and Stacey Goater (Ashton Media).
“We’re so excited to grow the UnLtd family with such a talented, smart and passionate group of good humans,” said UnLtd CMO, Nina Nyman.
“The diverse group each brings their own unique skills, backgrounds and perspective. I can’t wait to work with our ambassadors to channel that passion into meaningful projects that will help young people at risk.”
The year-long program will kick off in March 2022 and include a charity immersion, mentoring, events and special projects that will see the ambassadors use their skills and influence for good to help children and young people at risk.
UnLtd also announced an alumni program for the 2021 Ambassadors for Good with Jade Harley, partnership, social and content director at Kaimera, and Emmalee Fagerstrom, senior data strategist at Yahoo taking on the role of co-chairs of the program.
The Ambassadors for Good program is sponsored by Yahoo, a long-term supporter of UnLtd and Hall of Good inductee.
Yahoo’s vice president and head of APAC, Paul Sigaloff, said, “I have no doubt most people in our industry want to leave a positive impact on the world, society and people. At Yahoo that’s what we all have in common.
“We’re so proud to once again support such an important program that’s building the leaders of tomorrow and creating advocates for change.”
