Lenovo employees have re-engineered their annual global month of service to ensure that their ability to give back and their community members’ safety are not hindered by COVID-19. While COVID-19 has disrupted so many day-to-day interactions for communities around the world, Lenovo employees worked closely with community partners and NGOs to accomplish Lenovo Foundation’s mission to empower under-represented populations with access to technology and STEM education while social distancing. For most of the projects, this meant creating a new, “virtual volunteer” opportunity.
Throughout the month of October, Lenovo employees will be providing virtual mentorships, book readings, career shadowing, and even constructing a special STEM activity book for pediatric hospital patients. In many projects around the world, employees worked with existing community partners to determine how they could safely continue their annual day of service.
