Honored by: Edwards Lifesciences Foundation
These 20 Edwards employees tirelessly volunteer their time and talent on the Edwards Lifesciences Foundation’s Administrative Steering Committee (ASC). The ASC is responsible for strategically guiding and supporting the work of the Foundation across the world, and this thoughtful, energetic team of employees truly ensures the Foundation maximizes its impact in communities.
Through reading and ranking grant applications, collaborative meetings discussing the most effective strategy of the Foundation, oversight on governance issues, supporting nonprofit and charities as they do often life changing work in their local region, motivating other employees to volunteer and give back, and sharing the stories of nonprofits that are changing lives around the world to inspire others to give back are just some of the tasks that this thoughtful committee takes on every year.
At Edwards, we aspire to have 100% of our employees volunteer in their community by doing at least one activity every year. That aspiration wouldn’t be possible without the thoughtful, strategic volunteer support from our 20 ASC members that help to lead this cause, engage and support our partners, and make a different around the world.
