Westpac to Launch CSR Initiative
Thursday, 14th October 2010 at 12:54 pm

Banking Group, Westpac is to launch a new mentoring program described as the next evolution of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in Australia.

The Organisational Mentoring Program is a skills transfer initiative developed by the Westpac Group’s Sustainability and Community team and Westpac says it is the first of its kind in Australia.

The Program will be launched at the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence in Redfern in December, where The Westpac Group has partnerships with local Aboriginal organisations.

The Organisational Mentoring Program partners with Not for Profit organisations, providing mentoring and leadership advice.

The Head of The Westpac Group’s Organisational Mentoring Program, Sandy Blackburn-Wright says this enables organisations to build on their internal skills and capability with the ultimate objective of enhancing their long term business sustainability.

Blackburn-Wright says that through these partnerships it is seeing improved outcomes in governance, employee engagement and organisational capabilities.

The Westpac Group plans to continue to grow this program and introduce it to corporate Australia within the coming months as a benchmark for future CSR activities.

Key speakers will include: Governor-General Ms Quentin Bryce AC and Chief Executive Officer of the Westpac Group, Gail Kelly.

Some of Westpac's Not for Profit partners in the program are Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Queensland Rural Women’s Network and Wyanga Aged Care Services.

The Governor-General, Quentin Bryce AC, and The Westpac Group Chief Executive Officer, Gail Kelly, will officially launch the program.
