Spotlight on You

Randy Choy has been promoted to vice president of community giving and nonprofit partnerships and managing director of the Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation. Randy has been instrumental in evolving the bank’s community giving strategy and community grants program to improve economic vitality for the greater good, especially for under-resourced individuals, families, and small businesses.

Donnica Hawes-Saunders, PMI’s partnerships manager for global transformation communications,  has created PMI Global Services’ first internship/mentorship program for its business affiliate in the U.S., inspired by the role of mentors in her own life. The program is run through the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, the largest organization in the U.S. exclusively representing the Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU) community. These institutions have a specific connection to history, culture, programming, and networking that has resulted in an extraordinary list of alumni.

Ann Woo, senior director of corporate citizenship at Samsung, was featured in the Samsung Newsroom for leading a session at the International Corporate Citizenship Conference on how Samsung is working to foster inclusivity in STEM education through Samsung Solve for Tomorrow. “At Samsung, change is a constant and part of our DNA. That same spirit drives our Citizenship team to look at new ways to evolve Solve for Tomorrow,” said Woo at the event.
