WEWORK, one of the leading global flexible space providers, has launched the WeWork GIVE initiative to empower local nonprofit organizations and social enterprises across six Southeast Asia markets, including Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. The new initiative aims to support the growth of local social enterprises by providing complimentary and subsidized access to workspaces, meeting rooms, event venues and mentorship programs. WeWork GIVE, which stands for Gratitude, Inclusivity, Volunteer and Enrich, is part of WeWork’s social mission to give back to the surrounding communities. The initiative provides complimentary access to WeWork’s all-inclusive workspaces, meeting rooms, event venues and global network and enables a conducive environment for NPOs and social enterprises to create impactful work and contribute to a society in need. Beyond providing a physical workspace, WeWork will also support these NPOs and social enterprises by hosting educational, professional and personal growth mentoring classes through WeWork Labs. “Over the past four years, WeWork has supported more than 40 causes across Southeast Asia including humanitarian crises, environmental issues, and social issues, alongside our social partners. The GIVE initiative will serve as a platform for us to further enrich the lives of our social stakeholders while creating sustainable impact together,” said Balder Tol, general manager for Australia and Southeast Asia at WeWork. WeWork GIVE is open to any local NPOs or social enterprises of all sizes, based in Southeast Asia, subject to verification of social enterprise status, as well as internal review and approval from WeWork.
