Learn from Leaders Taking Action on SDG 3
At LS&Co., the day is also a chance to reflect upon the company’s history of progressive leadership in addressing HIV/AIDS in the workplace and around the world through education, policy change and human rights advocacy. In 1981, AIDS didn’t even have a name. In 1982, then-CEO Bob Haas and other top LS&Co. leaders stood shoulder-to-shoulder with concerned employees in San Francisco to distribute informational pamphlets.
Today, LS&Co. remains the longest continuous corporate supporter in the fight against HIV/AIDS, with over $70 million granted globally to date through the Levi Strauss Foundation. While an HIV/AIDS diagnosis is no longer synonymous with imminent death, there is still work to be done and their commitment to achieving an HIV-free generation is unwavering.”
Grow your Positive Impact: Collaborate with NGOs and Other Companies
Partnering with NGOs focusing on health and well-being can help leverage the experience, knowledge, best practices, and network of these global organizations to amplify your efforts.
“UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to save children’s lives, to defend their rights, and to help them fulfil their potential.
Good nutrition is the bedrock of child survival, health and development. Well-nourished children are better able to grow and learn, to participate in and contribute to their communities, and to be resilient in the face of disease, disasters, and other global crises.
But for the millions of children suffering from malnutrition, the reality is stark. Every year, around 3 million children die due to undernutrition. For millions more, chronic malnutrition will result in stunting – an irreversible condition that literally stunts the physical and cognitive growth of children.
The good news is that we can change this.”
