NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ —

纽约/北京-每场危机都蕴藏着机会。在全球企业社会责任基金会(GCSRF)发起和主持的跨国云论坛上,30位企业社会责任(CSR)领袖和3400多名观众达成共识:非常时期需要非常对策。前所未遇的新冠疫情,要求全球商业领袖创造性的运用CSR工具,保持清晰的视野,采取有效的行动。

2020年5月28日,历时4个半小时的Zoom会议在6个国家和地区同步直播。来自非营利组织、多边机构、企业、智库和学术界的CSR领袖,围绕抗疫期间CSR的创新应用和后疫时期CSR的展望,展开了深入坦诚的跨国对话。

全球企业社会责任基金会(GCSRF)主席赵兢在开幕词中表示:“新冠肺炎对全球经济造成巨大深远的影响,每一个国家、每一个企业都难于幸免。病毒不分种族、不分国界,在此关键时刻,国际社会需要凝聚力量、互相扶持、互助友爱。此次云论坛有不可比拟的重要性,与会的有识之士肩负的企业社会责任更为重大。“

世界妇女组织(WWO)总干事安格拉·R·M阁下参与了这次重要的跨国对话,她宣布,该组织将于2020年9月15日举办【第四届世界妇女大会《北京宣言及行动纲领》(1995) 25 周年纪念活动】;开启筹备世界妇女发展大会,深入讨论及研究妇女权力的现况,促进妇女发展及性别平等的进程。

此外,安格拉·R·M阁下还在会上宣布成立世界妇女组织CSR委员会及纽约办公室,并委任赵兢为委员会执行秘书长及纽约办公室负责人。

赵兢欣然受任,她表示将开始积极筹备2020年9月的《北京宣言及行动纲领》(1995) 25 周年纪念活动以及世界妇女发展大会,着手加强世界妇女组织在CSR方面的发展,推动世界妇女组织与纽约联合国总部的合作与联系。

联合国全球传播部NGO执行委员会第一副主席Padmini MURTHY博士在峰会上强调,妇女在新冠期间面临着更多挑战。数据表明,疫情爆发以来,针对妇女和女童的暴力行为有所加剧。例如,自3月17日城市封锁后,有关家庭暴力的报道增加了30%。

Murthy博士同时提到,新冠肺炎引发的经济衰退,导致人均收入减少20%,新增贫困人口达5.476亿,其中女性比例远高于男性。不过,Murthy博士不忘肯定女性在新冠防范中的重要作用。Kaiser Family基金会研究报告结果显示,新冠疫情期间,女性主导家庭防疫的比例越来越高。

中国工业经济联合会企业社会责任促进中心主任王晓光作为北京会场嘉宾出席,他分享了疫情期间的CSR案例和数据,并分析了跨国公司的新趋势和挑战。嘉宾大学创始人吴婷根据嘉宾学员的一手数据,分享了中国企业在应对新冠病毒方面的创新解决方案和企业社会责任最佳实践。

WHTB PODCAST WELCOMING SPECIAL GUESTS FOR NEW SHOW ABOUT REDEMPTION, EMPOWERMENT AND RECOVERY

MR. VISH

Mr. Vish WHTB Podcast Host

WHTB Podcast is available on Itunes, Spotify and Google Play. For information on being a guest on the show contact mrvish@mrvishmedia.com

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, May 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Outspoken personal empowerment advocate known as Mr. Vish is inviting special guests for his new podcast program, “Who’s Holding the Bag?” The show, which premiered on March 17 of this year, promotes guests of entertainment, business, arts and sports renown who want to share their redemption and empowerment-over-adversity narratives in the testimonial-based interview format.

It’s the kind of storytelling the host himself knows firsthand. In 2013 Dimitry Vishnevetsky, an Oxford-educated then-34 year-old financial advisor, pled guilty to investment fraud in a Chicago federal courtroom. He was sentenced to six years in federal prison. Out of that experience Mr. Vishnevetsky became Mr. Vish. The latter is banking on his creative and reflective sides to make his newer, abbreviated moniker one he can promote not so much without the smear of scandal, but as a been-there-done-that rehabilitated and insightful version of the sports-car driving, jet-set traveling banking hotshot.

Enter “Who’s Holding the Bag?” While the podcast covers the requisite social issues like culture, lifestyle, politics, and economics, what gives the show its brash, fresh perspective is the integration of these topics with elements of the human condition most people are afraid to talk about. “Who’s Holding the Bag?” interrogates our assumptions about personal redemption over issues like addiction, incarceration, and temptation, among other no-no’s. Mr. Vish weaves these dialogues into his and his guests and, ultimately, our own larger life narratives in questions like, What really constitutes right from wrong? How might the justice system and some of our socio-cultural mores about good and bad better benefit from appreciating some of the subtleties and grays in personal decision-making, the things that aren’t always so concrete or black-and-white in life as they are in law? Marketed across a spectrum of demographics, from millennials to Gen Xers to Baby Boomers, “Who’s Holding the Bag?” is a weekly discussion about choices and decision-making in an often deceptive and uncertain world. These issues traverse all populations and ultimately make (or break) what we recognize as the human condition.

“Who’s Holding the Bag?” is available on Apple itunes, Spotify and Google Play. For information on being a guest on the show or for more information about Mr. Vish contact WHTB@therealmrvish.com

LtoR: Mimi Greeley and Michaela Byrnes

MOUNT VERNON, NEW YORK, USA, May 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo recognized longtime Wartburg Therapeutic Recreation Director Ms. Michaela Byrnes for her work in resident and family communication during visitation restrictions and Wartburg’s pandemic response efforts.

In a letter to Ms. Byrnes, the Governor thanked her for her extraordinary work and compassionate efforts as we face one of the biggest public health crisis in our history. Also in his letter, Governor Cuomo stated: “Please also extend my sincere appreciation to your fellow co-workers at Wartburg for their remarkable commitment and sacrifice amidst this terrifying pandemic. I am blessed to have selfless individuals like yourselves who continue to offer assistance to those in critical need despite the fear and uncertainty currently surrounding us.”

Michaela Byrnes said of the honor, “I am very appreciative to the Greeley family who took the time to write to Governor Cuomo during this difficult time and it is was an honor to see his response included recognizing everyone at Wartburg. Family communication is now a 24-7 job within the Therapeutic Recreation department and while all of us have a part to play, I consider our department the lucky ones who get to provide these special moments for our residents and their family members.”

Ms. Byrnes, is a 21-year employee of Wartburg and was appointed to the prestigious 2013 LeadingAge New York Leadership Academy, the state’s association’s yearlong program providing enhancing the leadership capacity of aging-services professionals so they are better equipped to serve the aging-services field.

“I feel very fortunate to have the ability, with assistance of course, to not only talk to my beloved family members but to see their beautiful faces as well”, said Ms. Mimi Greeley. “This modern technology is wonderful!”

Dr. David J. Gentner, Wartburg President & CEO, said, “Lately, it doesn’t always feel like the work we do is appreciated so the Governor’s recognition of Michaela has a halo effect on those of us who still desire to serve the field of senior care and housing in the aftermath of physically and emotionally challenging times.”
