Leaving Lasting Impressions
At Xerox Canada, we are committed to the development and enhancement of our communities. Our vision is to leave footprints coast-to-coast in the communities in which we live and work to better our country and enrich the lives of our fellow Canadians.
Making a Positive Difference
We strive to initiate positive change by supporting innovative projects and programs that demonstrate Xerox’s leadership, knowledge, expertise, abilities and corporate citizenship. We aim to fulfill our promise as a community leader. Our commitment to giving back is at the cornerstone of Xerox’ concept of citizenship.
Xerox Cares About YOU
As a socially-conscious and community-minded company, Xerox Canada believes high performance organizations have responsibilities that go beyond their primary economic role. We are committed to a policy of positive community engagement, which we demonstrate by sharing our financial resources, as well as our time, energy and compassion.
While we appreciate the value of each cause we are asked to support, we have limited capacity to entertain proposals beyond those which Xerox proactively seeks out. A significant portion of our annual budget for charitable giving is committed to organizations with which our employees are actively engaged as volunteers. Our preference to lead engagement with non-profit organizations or other charitable causes is intended to match our philanthropic vision.
Seeing is Believing: Mandy Shapansky meets with the Prince of Wales
Prince Charles brings CEOs together to promote socially responsible business practices
Xerox Canada President and CEO Mandy Shapansky was part of a delegation of 12 Canadian CEOs invited to meet with the Prince of Wales as part of the Prince’s Seeing is Believing (PSiB) program, which promotes socially responsible business practices in Canada.
On January 29, the Canadian delegates met with other United Kingdom CEOs involved with PSiB, followed by lunch and private meetings with Prince Charles at St. James’s Palace – the home of several members of the Royal Family and their household offices.
PSiB’s current focus in Canada is on issues affecting disadvantaged youth and the Prince wants business leaders to use their position, resources and contacts to tackle related social issues. Through her involvement in the program, Mandy’s efforts are focused on mobilizing Canadian CEOs to help provide meaningful and sustainable employment opportunities for talented, aboriginal youth in urban centres across Canada, beginning in Toronto.
During the meeting with the Prince, each CEO made a commitment to His Royal Highness to recruit business leaders from across the country to build a network revolving around socially responsible business in Canada. Mandy herself committed to supporting and advancing aboriginal youth development in this country.
