How do corporations tackle some of the world’s toughest problems in a way that really benefits society? Through providing a platform for creative employees to collaborate both inside their organization and with outside organizations, according to Alan Nemeth, an HP Fellow and Chief Technologist for our Enterprise Cloud Services - Unified Communication offering. He was accepting the prestigious Justmeans Social Innovation Award for Most Strategic Use of Philanthropic Funds for our successful Early Infant Diagnosis program in Kenya at the 2012 Ceres conference in Boston, MA on April 25.
Nemeth stated that collaboration is “the most effective and sustainable way to solve problems.” He added that the Early Infant Diagnosis program with Clinton Health Access Initiative, the Kenyan Ministry of Public Health & Sanitation, and Strathmore University is a perfect example of collaboration in action, as it demonstrates the unique value that multiple stakeholders in public-private partnerships can bring to the table to create a positive impact on society and significantly benefit infant lives in Kenya.
Justmeans awards honor the global leaders that are tackling the world’s most pressing challenges through social innovation. Ceres is an NGO that mobilizes business leadership to ignite innovation and scale sustainability to build a healthy global economy. Together in Boston they showcased leadership and innovation in global citizenship.
