Working for a dynamic company like Avery Dennison means no two days are ever the same. From implementing strategic social media campaigns to cultivating an actively engaged digital community, there are many exciting aspects to my job. One of my favorites is undoubtedly the opportunity to work with our talented leaders and employees across our business units and geographic regions. If you haven't visited our social media profiles or corporate blog (you should!), these are the platforms the Corporate Communications team and I use to showcase the great work taking place across our company.
One of these highlights took place this summer during the Avery Dennison Foundation's Spirit of Invention (InvEnt) Scholarship award ceremony. I flew to New Delhi, India to work alongside the Foundation team and our colleagues in Gurgaon to promote the event and winners, and even do a little sightseeing.
Our colleagues in Gurgaon, India organized a volunteer event with Smile Foundation of India before we attended the festivities leading up to the InvEnt Scholarship award ceremony. The Smile Foundation of India is an NGO that supports thousands of children and their families every year through education, healthcare and women’s empowerment. Driving through Old Gurgaon over unpaved roads, I was struck by the signs of extreme poverty in the community.
