From research labs to the boardroom, responsible stewardship and trust have been hallmarks of IBM’s culture for more than a century.
The annual IBM Corporate Responsibility Report, published on June 29, details IBM’s performance and progress in 2019 and beyond on a wide variety of issues. Those include how the company operates with trust and transparency: how it supports its employees, the company’s social impact, protecting the environment, responsible supply chain management and governance.
As a 17-year-old from Brooklyn, NY, I’m not letting anything damper my ambition—not even a global pandemic.
This year, I’m graduating from the Pathways to Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) school in Brooklyn with both my high school diploma and associate’s degree in computer systems technology. Though students can take up to six years to complete the P-TECH program, I completed it in four years, which makes me proud.
Turning our organizations into places of continuous learning is our responsibility. And the key to achieving this lies in our culture.
In a world where learning must be continuous and lifelong, the times when academic institutions were the chief agents responsible for imparting knowledge are coming to an end. In the same way that with the digital revolution technology has ceased to be an independent sector and has permeated the core of all other industries, the same will happen with education in the years to come.

Compassionate care is a big part of what we do as nurses. Our job has always been to help both patients and their families. We listen to questions and concerns, explain details of treatments and procedures, and lend support in many other ways. We have extensive skill sets in the health sciences, as well as coordination and organization skills that we use to help others.

Making the world a better place is a guiding principle embedded in IBM’s core values. As COVID-19 continues to present unprecedented, global challenges for individuals, communities and organizations across the globe, we continue to take a stand and do what’s right to reestablish health and safety across the globe. I’m constantly in awe with the ingenuity and collaborative effort across sectors that have all stepped up in response to this crisis.
The theme for the 50th anniversary of Earth Day 2020 is climate action. Not merely just the enormous challenge we face, but also the vast opportunities everyone can take advantage of to help solve climate change, one of the most pressing topics of our time.
There are so many ways to get involved–from changing how we consume and live, to building sustainable solutions that will help our collective tomorrow.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. As we observe this occasion in the midst of a global pandemic, it strikes me as a timely reminder that we must not relegate climate change and the health of our planet to the back burner. Rather, Earth Day 2020 is a chance to reflect on the lessons that COVID-19 teaches us about the Earth, our environment, and ourselves.
