QED as a company demonstrate our commitment to global development by participating in coalition-driven development organizations and advisory boards. We regularly sponsor Devex and SID-W events in the Washington, DC area, engaged as speakers and/or panelists. QED is also an active member of the organizations featured below, regularly participating in global conferences.
Driven by the knowledge that development is a long-term commitment, QED developed a social responsibility and charitable giving approach that has increased the company’s level of giving, focusing its support locally and building committed partnerships in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. By providing more funds to fewer organizations, QED is able to maximize impact and provide sustainable assistance to its community.
In this vein, QED’s staff-led Outreach for Impact Committee (OFIC) successfully established long-term partnerships with the three local organizations listed below. The OFIC works closely with each of the organizations to plan volunteer activities, sponsor large events, and coordinate donation drives and financial contributions. Please see photo gallery of past sponsored events.
