This week, I will depart to Jaipur, India to start my engagement in the IBM Corporate Service Corps (CSC). The CSC is part of IBM’s Global Citizen’s Portfolio initiative. It is a program to develop leadership skills while addressing economic challenges in emerging markets. This involves IBMers who can contribute valuable and much-needed skills, talent, and capabilities in emerging market countries and help make an impact in that country.
This video gives you an idea of the impact a former CSC team made for handicapped people in India:
I will be working in a team of 12 IBMer from 11 different countries (Brasil, Mexico, US, Canada, The Netherlands, Italy, Hungary, Nigeria, China, Australia and myself from Switzerland) as the CSC team “India 32”.
During my engagement in Jaipur, I plan to regularly provide updates on this unique journey through this blog as well as on Twitter (@mfehr_ch). Stay tuned!
