Essilor Launches New Fellowship to Extend Reach of Its Social Impact
Essilor has created a new prestigious and highly selective program – Essilor Base-of-Pyramid Fellowship (EBoP) to give talented young people the opportunity to collaborate with Essilor in developing projects that have a social impact in underprivileged communities.
Passionate and dynamic individuals will spend six months in developing communities at the base of the global economic pyramid. They will gain first-hand experience of inclusive business and philanthropic activities and develop an intimate understanding of local conditions.
Through this program, EBoP Fellows will help Essilor grow its impact in developing markets and expand its support for underserved communities around the world, while gaining valuable hands-on experience.
Project areas will span across areas such as piloting and optimizing new and existing inclusive business models, formulating market entry strategies, developing communications and merchandising solutions, conducting research and impact studies, developing human resources strategies and enhancing the supply chain of our inclusive business.
The pilot run of the EBoP Fellowship is expected to take place in early 2019, with possible postings in markets in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
