Astellas Pharma Director of Sustainability and Corporate Advocacy and Vice President of the Astellas Global Health Foundation Angelique Lewis — a PRNews CSR finalist — was featured in an article about how corporate social action is on the rise.

When asked about how the pandemic has impacted her organization’s approach to CSR, Angelique said, “Volunteerism always was core to our culture…The team worked with non-profit organizations that [we] had a long history of supporting to build a list of nearly 20 virtual and socially distant volunteer opportunities. Within weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic, we posted this to the CSR section of our Intranet and communicated it to employees.”
