Jingshi Philanthropy Seminar Series (Issue 140) – Volunteer Service

Pro Bono and Career Life

Introduction to Event

Philanthropy is a quite popular topic in modern life that cannot be avoided. The believers, skeptics and unbelievers of philanthropy will not change their opinions on it. We can ignore philanthropy. But we cannot ignore the surrounding environment of survival.

In 2016, the Law of Philanthropy has empowered the philanthropy. Since then, social organizations, in particular philanthropy funds, have been established in large quantity. Nevertheless, in the World Donation Index, China Donation Index stands at only 11% and volunteer service rate at 4%, placing China in the backward position. Apart from immigrating and complaining, what else should we do as the employed people?

Peng Yan, who once worked in academic community for 8 years, in a foreign company for 3 years, in funding organization for 3 years and in international organization as top executive for 10 years, will share with you her idea about how Pro Bono helps boost career life; and about the 5W2H Pro Bono. Together with you, she will also ask why, who and what.
