Thrive Through Change: Making a difference with CSR amidst the pandemic
Thrive Through Change: Making a difference with CSR amidst the pandemic
Watch how organizations such as Accenture in the Philippines, PBEd, and CANVAS defied COVID-19 to deliver exemplary corporate citizenship

Tough times call for solidarity amongst organizations, and also, towards their stakeholders and communities. However, the pandemic restricted them from pursuing community outreach and development initiatives because these were heavily dependent on face-to-face interactions.

But there are workarounds.

In this discussion, we talked to some organizations about the ways they found to assist and contribute despite the unprecedented challenges. We zeroed in on initiatives that focused on education which has been impacted by this pandemic. As our panel proved, there are no hindrances for groups that are always willing to help.

Our guests:

  • Louise Sabariaga, Corporate Citizenship executive sponsor for Accenture in the Philippines
  • Love Basillote, executive director for Philippine Business for Education (PBEd)
  • Gigo Alampay, founder of the Center for Art, New Ventures, and Sustainable Development (CANVAS)

This session was moderated by host Cesca Litton-Kalaw.

This roundtable discussion is the final part of Thrive Through Change, a tech-focused multimedia series by Rappler, in partnership with Accenture in the Philippines. –
