CA Technologies kicked off its 12th annual CA Together in Action initiative during the week of April 23-27, with employee volunteer projects scheduled to take place around the world.
From land, beach and public space cleanup and preservation, to feeding the hungry, environmental education and restoration projects, packing and shipping books to school children in Africa – and supporting the advancement of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) learning for young people – CA employees will join together to help make a difference.
As a technology company, CA has a clear and vested interest in the advancement of STEM learning and fostering the future talent pipeline of technology leaders.
“Through our CA Together in Action initiative, and philanthropic programs throughout the year, CA employees are committed to making a difference in the communities where they live and work,” said Erica Christensen, vice president, Corporate Social Responsibility, CA Technologies. “Participation levels have continued to grow, since the program’s inception in 2005, demonstrating the commitment our colleagues around the globe have to advancing social, environmental and economic sustainability for all.”
Several of the activities are being held with long-time nonprofit partners, including Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Connemara Conservancy, PENCIL, Mass Audubon’s Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary, and Robert Moses State Park.
Since the CA Together in Action initiative launched in 2005, more than 65,000 employee volunteer hours have been contributed and more than 1,300 projects have been completed.
