Mala Bingham quoted in Accounting Today
In “EY participates in 2017 Earthwatch Ambassadors Program,” Accounting Today highlights the week-long program that represents a partnership between EY and the Earthwatch Institute, a nonprofit organization that promotes scientific field research and education towards sustainable environments.
As part of this year’s program, 40 EY staff members traveled to Peru and Mexico to bring their business acumen to local entrepreneurs, as well as to help conduct field research on environmental issues. Collectively, the participants donated over 3,000 hours of service to local entrepreneurs in Mexico and Peru.
Parthenon-EY Campus Recruiter Mala Bingham reflected on her experience in the EY-Earthwatch Ambassadors program: “With the support of my EY-Earthwatch team, I was able to simultaneously collaborate and project manage, while also developing my public speaking skills,” she said. “This experience reinvigorated my commitment to giving back to our communities and the earth. I gained confidence in my knowledge of sustainable initiatives and in my ability to explain the concepts to those in my sphere of influence.”
