TheKnowList to launch CSR programme
TheKnowList will launch its corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme on 20 January at TheKnowList Awards event at the Renaissance Chancery Court Hotel in Holborn, London.
TheKnowList’s CSR programme will be run in association with Georgina Cranston, a reportage photographer who specialises in documenting the issues of social and women’s rights.
A small exhibition of Georgina’s work, which highlights the plight of women in the gold mining town of Mongbwalu, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, will be displayed at the awards event.
TheKnowList’s CSR programme will be further developed during 2011, and it is intended to raise awareness and funds for a variety of domestic and international causes.
Daniel Brown CEO at TheKnowList says: “We believe that we are in a prime position to engage with a very wide audience. We are able to put issues and initiatives in front of international law firms and large corporations. We have already received a tremendous reaction to other events that we have held, where social or charitable causes have been part of the occasion.”
Georgina Cranston comments: “I am delighted to be working in association with the TheKnowList, an organisation that is committed to raising awareness of the kind of issues I highlight in my photography. I envisage TheKnowList’s network providing a fantastic level of exposure to important issues. I see it as a tremendous platform through which we can engage people?s attention.”
In November, TheKnowList supported fund raising for Breakthrough Breast Cancer at the inaugural LILIConnect event, a networking programme for Ladies in Legal Information (LILI). TheKnowList will continue to work to raise funds for Breakthrough in 2011 and work with the Breathrough team as part of TheKnowList CSR programme.
