Late last month, we hosted our first global eBay Inc. Social Innovation Leader’s Summit with nearly 50 employee Green and GIVE team leaders attending from around the world, including Brazil, China, Germany, India, Israel and the U. S. Currently, more than 3,000 employees in more than 30 offices participate in our Green and GIVE teams. By coming together at our headquarters in San Jose, CA, the employee leaders were able to hear from executives from across the company, share best practices, learn from each other and make plans for the year ahead (including some exciting ideas that will encourage cross-office collaboration!).
At the Summit, we didn’t just talk about doing good, we got our hands dirty and actually did some good, too! Our Social Innovation leaders teamed up with Good Karma Bikes — an organization that provides homeless and low-income people with safe, reliable bicycle transportation to their place of work and to help improve their quality of life — to build bikes for local citizens in need.
As ambassadors of our global Social Innovation efforts, our leaders are committed to driving even more impact in their offices and the communities in which they operate.
