Open Doors Initiative Annual Report 2022 Launch


The Open Doors Initiative launched our Annual Report for 2022 at the LinkedIn HQ in Dublin on Thursday 22nd June 2023 to a group of ODI member company professionals and participants from our programmes. The report showcases the profound impact made by corporate members and the organisation in uplifting marginalised individuals.
A panel featuring some of our participants and representatives from ODI member companies discussed the challenges faced and opportunities created through working with Open Doors. We also premiered a new video series where our participants shared how being involved with Open Doors has had a positive impact on their lives. 
Paddy Hayes, Chair of ODI and CEO of ESB, commented; "Our member companies understand the power of a strong, values-based, and inclusive culture. They embrace diversity of thought, skillsets, and experience, recognising that people are the driving force behind success. By hiring individuals who bring unique perspectives, these organisations reflect the diversity of their customers and society."

Jeanne McDonagh, CEO of ODI, added; "We applaud the companies committed to corporate social justice, understanding that this long-term approach requires a deep commitment and awareness of the social context. At the Open Doors Initiative, we strive to imbue corporate social justice into all our work, and we sincerely thank our corporate members and supporting partners for their dedication to improving the lives of our valued participants.” 

Thank you to all who attended and to our participants who took part in our video and photographic profiles.
