Go beyond one size fits all corporate volunteering!

Working for Women’s curated employee skill-based volunteering programs are designed to support women from marginalized communities, supersize the impact of our nonprofit partners and create growth opportunities for companies and their employees. 

Corporate volunteering in action

“Working with an organization like W4W allowed us to clearly define the engagement. This allows for a triple win where nonprofits improve their capacity and serve more women, and businesses retain loyal employees and customers, resulting in better business performance.”
– Kimaya Padgaonkar, a Consultant at ZS

Corporate volunteering has become an integral part of many organizations’ corporate social responsibility efforts, and general corporate volunteering has its merits and should be part of a company’s social responsibility strategy.

But what if you could reconfigure volunteering so that it achieves even more?

How about an initiative with longer-lasting impact for your staff, with a built-in element that taps your employees’ skills, strengthens internal relationships, and even enhances employee growth, career development and leadership skills?  

We call this Skillunteering™ – and it’s the approach that Working for Women created to match the needs and values of companies that want to do good with nonprofits that would benefit from strategic expertise.
