Eli Lilly employees give back

Company service program sends 200 employees on global learning journeys.

While the legal department at Eli Lilly and Co. has successfully implemented its own special project, a Street Law program at a local high school, Lilly’s robust service culture extends into all of the company’s departments.

The company’s global services program, Connecting Hearts Abroad, which launched in March, is an innovative service project that sends groups of eight or nine Lilly employees to developing communities in Central America, South America, Africa and Asia that lack fundamental resources. Lilly ambassadors work together for two weeks to address the communities’ needs and assist residents in four categories: health care, caregiving, teaching and community development.
