A new photographic portrait exhibition, The Face of Corporate Responsibility, Ireland, will go on display at NUI, Galway from Tuesday February 9 to Sunday 14 in the university’s Orbsen Building.
The exhibition consists of unique portraits taken by photographer Kevin Fox in the studios of the National Gallery of Photography. Each portrait is accompanied by a caption explaining the reasons why this particular employee was nominated to take part in the exhibition.
The exhibition is organised by Business in the Community Ireland and NUIG. It will be officially opened on Tuesday at 2pm by NUIG president Dr James J Browne and BITCI chief executive Tina Roche. The opening will also feature short talks by representatives from two of BITCI’s local member companies, IBM and Boots.
Each speaker will highlight the importance of corporate responsibility from his/her own perspectives, giving an interesting insight into the perception of socially responsible business practice from each sector.
BITCI is a national non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting corporate responsibility in Ireland. Corporate responsibility is about companies continually improving the impact they have on society, specifically in the community, environment, marketplace, and workplace.
Speaking about the exhibition Tina Roche said: “BITCI wants to show university graduates that a responsible attitude towards society and the environment can continue well after they have graduated. The exhibition portrays that extraordinary contributions to society can be made and are being made by thousands of employees nationwide.”
The exhibition is open daily. Admission is free and all are welcome.
