We all have our ideas of what a dream job would look like, but I think we can agree that running Google.org, the charitable arm of Google, would be pretty cool. Just ask Jacquelline Fuller, who, since 2014, has had that job, leading one of the biggest corporate giving programs on the planet. Last year alone, Google.org gave away $300 million (part of $1 billion dispersed in the last five years), funding nonprofits that support racial equity, economic empowerment, access to quality education and global COVID-19 responses, to name just a few.
