The buzz: Giving at the office.

Supporting the UN’s post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requires a multi-stakeholder collaboration recognizing diverse issues around the world. Goal 8 – “Good jobs and economic growth” for developing and developed countries – targets private sector companies that integrate sustainability and corporate social responsibility into their business plan. How can your organization help?

The experts speak.

Sue Stephenson, The Ritz-Carlton: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.” (Margaret Mead)

Ahsiya Posner Mencin, Ph.D., PULSE Volunteer Partnership, GSK: “Collaboration is much like a birth. The song that springs forth resembles each one of us to a degree, but it’s the kind of thing that would never be born from just one of us sitting down with a guitar.” (Grant-Lee Phillips)

Alexandra van der Ploeg, SAP: “In the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too), those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.” (Charles Darwin or  Prof. Leon C. Megginson)
