Investing in Resilience – Bringing Together CSR Leaders to Address Long Term Impact of COVID-19 – 28th April 2020
AMCHAM’s Karnataka Chapter, in association with ChildFund India and KPMG in India, organized a webinar on April 28th. With India reeling under the grip of COVID-19, millions of lives have been affected. Everyone can only make assumptions of what the world will look like when it emerges from isolation and the brutal reality of COVID-19. For those in leadership positions it is important that companies step up deliberations and responsibility to contribute towards rebuilding India, help in restoring lives and livelihoods.
The session addressed issues which continue to plague the poor in India, the channels that are available to leverage and possible approaches. The speakers were Ms. Neelam Makhijani, Country Director and CEO, ChildFund India and Mr. Santhosh Jayaram, Partner and Head – Sustainability, Climate Change and CSR Advisory, KPMG in India. The webinar was attended by companies like SannamS4, Grant Thornton, IBM, State Street and others.
