GEN­ERAL ELEC­TRIC Pres­i­dent: Jeff Im­melt

The HR Digest - - Cover Story -

Gen­eral Elec­tric has launched sev­eral ini­tia­tives to solve health and ed­u­ca­tion prob­lems glob­ally. De­vel­op­ing Health Glob­ally is the GE Foun­da­tion’s project to im­prove health­care ser­vices for some por­tion of the world’s most vul­ner­a­ble pop­u­la­tions in sub-sa­ha­ran Africa, Latin Amer­ica and South­east Asia. The De­vel­op­ing Fu­tures Ed­u­ca­tion Pro­gram sup­ports ac­tiv­i­ties to en­hance the eq­uity and qual­ity of K–12 gov­ern­ment funded ed­u­ca­tion in the U.S. This sys­tem has con­trib­uted more than $225 mil­lion and thou­sands of hours to sup­port stu­dent ac­com­plish­ment and pro­fes­sional im­prove­ment for in­struc­tors in K-12 state funded schools over the U.S. Also, the GE Foun­da­tion made De­vel­op­ing Health through var­i­ous ben­e­fi­cial or­ga­ni­za­tions with free, char­i­ta­ble group health­care fo­cuses. Since then, the GE Foun­da­tion has put a huge num­ber of dol­lars in the project, which backs GE’S ini­tia­tive to con­vey bet­ter and less ex­pen­sive medic­i­nal ser­vices to more peo­ple.

“The GE Foun­da­tion fo­cuses on health, ed­u­ca­tion and dis­as­ter re­lief,” wrote Deb Elam, pres­i­dent of the GE Foun­da­tion, in her most re­cent let­ter to share­hold­ers. “Ad­di­tion­ally, over the past 60 years, the GE fam­ily has given more than $1 bil­lion to char­ity through the GE Foun­da­tion Match­ing Gifts Pro­gram. The con­cept of cor­po­rate match­ing gift pro­grams started with GE.”
