While general volunteerism has been a key pillar of corporate philanthropic programs in the past, many companies have discovered how to align their employees’ interest in service with strategic business priorities. Through International Corporate Volunteering (ICV) employees use their professional skills and business training to help social enterprises and nonprofits expand or improve services. These assignments have proven to be powerful experiential learning opportunities that develop employees into the next generation of global business leaders.
Come join us for a presentation and discussion about International Corporate Volunteer programs (ICV) and find out why companies like PepsiCo are sending their top employees on extended volunteer assignments abroad.
Join Amanda MacArthur from CDC Development Solutions and Pascale Sejean, co-founder PepsiCorps, for an overview of ICV that will dive deep into trends, best practices and profile the new PepsiCorps program.
