Medtronic ranked No. 2 on the Fair360, formerly DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2023.
The Medtronic Foundation shared three ways to transform corporate volunteering and increase community engagement.
- Partner with organizations that share community-centric values, paying attention to missions and values that focus on fairness and inclusion.
- Approach volunteer work with humility, respect and willingness to listen and learn.
- Collaborate with local communities, focus on sustainable solutions and reflect on your own power and privilege.
“Volunteering can be a transactional activity — come in, do this thing, feel good, leave and never think about it again — or it can challenge the way you think about the world and your place in it,” said Mandy Iverson, Employee Experience Manager for the Medtronic Foundation.
