Here’s his story.
How do you view volunteering, Jorge?
Volunteering isn’t just an activity; it's a privilege and a responsibility. It's about acknowledging the immense support we receive from our communities and reciprocating with equal warmth and commitment. It's a promise to do right by our people.
You participated in some volunteer activities during MediTec. Can you shed some light on your role?
Absolutely! At MediTec, I was tasked with an essential responsibility: ensuring our attendees felt welcomed from the moment they stepped in. I orchestrated the assembly and distribution of welcome packages, ensuring that each participant received their sponsor gift promptly. The result was a seamless welcome, where attendees weren’t just directed efficiently to their stands, but greeted with tokens of our appreciation.

What are you most proud of?
The sense of being a part of a larger community that promotes health and wellbeing. Every smile, every word of appreciation, and every successful interaction was a testament to the difference we were making. The simple realization that my efforts directly or indirectly influenced people’s wellbeing fills my heart with pride.
For those still on the fence about volunteering, any words of wisdom?
We often forget the privileges we enjoy—be it clean water, shelter, education, or even our vibrant work environment at Sanofi. While we navigate through these privileges seamlessly, millions struggle without them. It's essential to remember that in our positions, we have an opportunity to extend a helping hand. So, I'd urge everyone to leverage this. Embrace the responsibility, and let's collectively uplift our communities, our people, and our world.
