|Following the principles of its social contribution pillar, the EMBA Alumni Association launched a new program called “DROP” in 2018. Its aim is to inspire more businesses to ‘drop’ old practices and mindsets to bring about more sustainable gains for businesses and the community.
The past several months saw the EMBA Alumni Association partner with social enterprises and businesses to hold three cross-sector workshops. These featured distinguished speakers who shared their experience of doing business and demonstrated how they achieved a remarkable synergy. These were:
• Cathay Pacific x Rooftop Republic: creating sustainable economic success with a social impact
• General Mills x iBakery: driving economic value alongside creating social value
• HKT (Tap & Go) x Heycoins: changing the usual way of doing business and co-creating shared value
Over 100 participants attended the three inspirational workshops. Hopefully, they will act as a DROP in their own working environments and extend the valuable message of “creating shared value (CSV)” to the people around them.
There are more social contribution activities to come. Please stay tuned for news from CUHK EMBA Alumni Association.
