Embassy champions collective action to engage and empower a larger number of beneficiaries
Driven by this idea, the Community Outreach team at Embassy Group has initiated a unique platform called the ‘Corporate Connect Program’ that champions inter-company collaboration towards achieving social development. With the vision to contribute to the social and economic development of under-served communities around its properties, Embassy Group hopes to join hands with the 190+ Corporate occupiers within its 3 Business Parks to create a larger radius of social impact through collective action.
Embassy Group believes that collaboration is the path forward to closing the gaps and creating long-term, sustainable change. With a strong aligned focus on partnering together – identifying innovative solutions, executing projects, and bringing in the involvement of stakeholders is the path we see towards future success.
