Facebook Provides Resources for Unemployed or Furloughed Ad Agency Professionals

Its Rise initiative was extended to Canada, Italy, Singapore and the US

Rise is based on three key pillars: learn, grow and thrive Facebook

The Rise initiative Facebook began piloting in Brazil last July to aid ad agency professionals who had been furloughed or lost their jobs altogether due to the pandemic. Rise debuted in several other Latin American countries over the past few months. It was extended to the U.S. Monday, as well as Canada, Italy and Singapore.
