QED as a company and through our employees demonstrate our commitment to global development by participating in coalition-driven development organizations and advisory boards. QED's Executive Vice President Byron Radcliffe is the Chairman of the Board for the Society for International Development (SID) Washington chapter. 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.
Corporate Social Responsibility
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.
