India’s Leading CSR platform Goodera to host Karma Summit India ‘Co- Creating a New Normal’

Kolkata, Nov 23 (UNI), the tech platform that unifies the CSR Lifecyle for
companies in India and abroad, is hosting global visionaries of the CSR and volunteering
community at their flagship event Karma Summit on November 25 on the theme ‘Co-Creating
A New Normal’.
The COVID-19 pandemic has not only united the world through a global crisis, it has also
brought together individuals and corporates who have made the world a better place during
these trying times. Their contributions, whether in disaster relief work, charitable or product
donations and real/virtual volunteering of both time and expertise have considerably contained
the impact of the global pandemic for local communities, individuals.
The event will provide opportunities to discuss strategic solutions for the post-pandemic
period through the lens of cross cutting-issues such as gender, technology for good and the
challenges of investing in a healthcare infrastructure in India. The summit will also help assess
the expected impact of the pandemic on our ability to move towards the SDGs 2030.
At the Karma Summit, corporate leaders can gain insights on how to keep employees
engaged in CSR and Volunteering activities; non-profits can connect with corporates and
get guidance from experts on strategies to evolve amidst the pandemic, and HR Teams
can find opportunities for meaningful employee engagement and resources for COVID relief.
Among the over 30 renowned speakers across the pharma, tech, auto, NGOs and health
sectors are Supriya Singh (Head - Corporate Social Responsibility, Tata Communications),
Deepak Prabhu Matti (Core committee Head, Cognizant Foundation), Archana Sahay (CSR
Head- APJ, Dell Technologies) and Susan Ferguson UN Women Representative for India.
The Keynote Address will be given by Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi.
“This summit brings under one platform, some of the most pressing conversations that
impact how companies visualize and implement CSR and Volunteering initiatives for 2020
and beyond which the session on ‘‘Business with Purpose- A Changing Boardroom Discussion’
will address. From our panelists and speakers, you will learn how to create multi stakeholder partnerships that accelerate and deepen the ability to transform a region. We encourage you
to attend the summit and take back something from it that will help you transform at least one
life for the better,” said Abhishek Humbad, Founder & CEO, Goodera.
The summit will culminate with the Karma Awards that will felicitate individuals and
organizations that have created meaningful social impact by giving back to the community
during the pandemic. The Jury members include established leaders in the CSR &
Volunteering sector in India.
