At DFS, we are committed to contributing to the communities in which we live and work through corporate social responsibility activities. We are more than an employer in our global locations – we support, assist and partner with local authorities, educational institutions, professional bodies and NGOs to ensure that we are responsible and caring corporate citizens. For over 55 years, our passionate employees have led the way in building a culture of giving, and we take pride in supporting causes that are important to our customers, brands and communities.
In our philanthropic efforts, we support and create opportunities for young people, specifically through education, health programs and development opportunities. We empower women and support their health through providing access to better medical support and skills-based training in underserved communities, and every year DFS teams around the world support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We preserve and foster arts and crafts to ensure the work of local artisans continues to flourish, and we give our employees a chance to give back through volunteering.
