Empower Month: Supporting Our Communities
Supporting the communities where we live and work is central to the CDW coworker experience. In addition to the company’s enterprise-wide commitment to addressing digital equity, we support coworkers’ volunteerism and philanthropic efforts, which enable them to utilize their skills to make an impact.
Through our Social Impact work, we are empowering our communities to reach their unlimited potential every day. Additionally, this October, CDW celebrated Empower Month. The initiative was dedicated to empowering coworkers globally in their giving, with opportunities to engage with local communities on a deeper level.
Empower Month activities occurred throughout our North American and UK footprint. Here’s a quick snapshot of highlights:
- Our North American coworkers completed more than 1,100 volunteer hours and contributed more than 1,100 monetary donations, benefitting over 530 nonprofit organizations.
- We joined the American Red Cross Disaster Responder Program, and our Illinois-based coworkers participated in a blood drive.
- Coworkers from across Ontario, Canada, came together to support a food drive, serving the food banks in their communities.
- To honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month, UK coworkers participated in the #TechInPink2022 campaign by wearing pink for a day and using a special virtual background to encourage conversations and help raise donations for the overall cause.
CDW coworkers are passionate about a variety of causes, and we encourage them to support the charitable organizations that matter most to them throughout the year. Coworkers are given eight hours of paid time off annually to volunteer.
