SAN JUAN, PR  – Companies should go beyond their established corporate responsibility programs to become partners in transformation.

There is an opportunity to become deep and longterm partners and to bring systematic change, urges Olga Ramos, President of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico in this video session with Rita Ferro, President of Advertising Sales at Disney.

In this session, Ramos, a former senior Walmart executive, provides an overview of the many issues facing Puerto Rico, including the systemic issue of child poverty on the island and the organization’s vision to cut the poverty rate by 50% in 10 years.

And she relays the work of the Clubs during the pandemic by helping the children with their studies and providing other support to the communities.

This 5-part series abut diversity and inclusion is made possible by a generous contribution to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico  from Disney Advertising Sales.
