Moody’s Partners With Pyxera Global to Launch Its First Global Pro Bono Program
WASHINGTON, August 19, 2019 /3BL Media/ — Moody’s, in partnership with PYXERA Global, launched a Global Pro Bono program in Beijing, China this week. Moody’s Future Solutions™ will leverage the professional skills of its employees to build the capacity of social impact organizations. The program is designed for Moody’s volunteers to contribute to solving some of the most pressing social challenges in a way that delivers value to the company and community.
“We are excited to have Moody’s as a PYXERA Global partner,” said Gavin Cepelak, Vice President, Global Pro Bono. “Moody’s attention to detail and push for data-driven, measurable impact has allowed us to collaboratively design a strong program.”
Moody’s began 2018 with an ambitious strategy to more tightly focus the company’s CSR efforts at the intersection of its business strengths, its employees’ interests and some of society’s most pressing needs. Moody’s employees play an integral role in driving the company’s CSR progress by sharing their passion and purpose with the world through their volunteer efforts, contributions of pro bono expertise, giving and board service on behalf of nonprofit organizations worldwide. Moody’s Future Solutions builds on this by directly applying business acumen to capacity challenges faced by social impact organizations.
"We make the greatest positive difference by aligning our social investments and volunteer efforts with our business expertise," said Arlene Isaacs-Lowe, Global Head of Corporate Social Responsibility at Moody’s. “We are eager to support our colleagues as they gain leadership experience, cultural awareness and a deeper appreciation of the social and environmental challenges around the world.”
Global Pro Bono programs are short-term experimental assignments that cultivates critical leadership competencies. Global Pro Bono accelerates an individual’s ability to lead through ambiguity, manage changing demographics, and handle cultural differences. Employees return more resilient, engaged, and committed to their company. To learn more about how Global Pro Bono helps cultivate purpose-driven leaders, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
