As a response to the Black Lives Matter movement and in the recognition of social & racial inequalities, Teamwork Commerce decided to take action and started the volunteer branch, TeamworkCares, in June 2020. TeamworkCares utilizes its global reach and diverse group of team members to promote initiatives that aim to impact our communities, promote awareness and fight for equality. Since its inception, members have impacted communities worldwide.

Shoes that Fit

In our most recent TeamworkCares initiative, we collaborated with Shoes that Fit to provide over 75 pairs of shoes to a local elementary school so students can attend school in comfort.

Mission

To raise awareness on the challenges of systemic racism and supporting equality around the world. Teamwork employees use their collective skills, knowledge, and ideas to bring about a positive and impactful change through education, mentorship and community initiatives.

Vision

To support Black Lives Matter, local organizations, underserved communities and educational initiatives. Through these actions TeamworkCares will empower social change, drive positive community growth and take a stand against social injustice.

Values

TeamworkCares is driven by respect, acceptance, and accountability. We stand up for justice & equality across the world. We are committed to driving out discrimination where we find it, supporting change through our resources, and advocating for meaningful action.

Initiatives

TeamworkCares will create initiatives that progress the mission of supporting equality around the world. An initiative is an opportunity for action to bring positive change (especially to improve a situation).

 

An initiative can be internal to company culture, directly to the local community, or via partnerships.

Education

Provide youth with Mentorship and education; inspire learning, new ideas and help develop sustainable skills, and provide a social support network relevant to the student’s immediate education needs and life skills. Mentoring is both remote and face-to-face over a sustained period (the school year) to promote greater knowledge, wisdom, or experience.

Mentorship

Partners with community organizations to support and develop diverse and underserved youth and adult entrepreneurs. This group aims to develop opportunities for TeamworkCare members to share their knowledge, support, and guidance in various areas of experience, based on the entrepreneur’s needs, to help promote growth and opportunity.

Community

Dedicated to discovering different activities and events within Teamwork’s local communities which promote or support the initiatives and values of TeamworkCares. Focused on organizing all logistics necessary so Teamwork staff can participate easily and promote in order to further raise awareness of systemic racism and support equality.
