Technological intervention can offer innovative and scalable solutions to the social challenges that we face today. Cutting-edge technologies provide a unique opportunity to deliver positive social impact in an unprecedented way.
In January 2020, we launched a global initiative that invited our best and brightest minds to target some of society’s biggest challenges through innovative, technology-led, ecosystem-enabled solutions.
Hundreds of employees across fifteen countries took part in the global challenge and presented compelling solutions to a range of problems: food insecurity & hunger in schools, digital exclusion, maternal mortality rates, carbon footprint from emails- to name a few!
After months of preparation, including mentoring from senior business and technology leaders, 13 finalist teams presented their solutions to a panel of senior executives and the following three ideas emerged as winners.
In the coming months, we will work with the winning teams to provide the resources required to bring their game-changing ideas to life and deliver social impact at scale as part of our Tech4PositiveFutures ambition.
