"Clarivate has sustainability at its core, as we advance our responsibility and efforts to positively impact the communities in which we live and work. By inspiring colleagues to volunteer locally or even virtually, we are collectively making a difference and contributing to a better world.”

Aman Gata-Aura, Clarivate Volunteer Network Global Lead

People are at the heart of everything we do at Clarivate. We believe that collaboration is key to fostering a sustainable world. We champion community partnerships and diverse, innovative contributions to our shared future. What better way to support giving back and social impact initiatives worldwide than to motivate and mobilize our colleagues and their communities? We’ve been busy building the foundational elements to encourage our colleagues to share their time, talent and resources wherever possible to make a measurable difference. Every Clarivate colleague is provided five days of paid volunteer time off.

We’ve made volunteering easier and more inspiring and by collaborating with the Clarivate Volunteering Network (CVN) which supports organizing and communicating various events and initiatives. CVN is aligned with the Sustainability Development Goals, with a focus on: quality education, gender equality, decent work and economic growth, industry innovation and infrastructure, reduced inequalities and sustainable cities and communities.

We’re reinvigorating volunteerism at Clarivate with the use of YourCause, a centralized platform for collaboration, event support and reporting where colleagues can find events, or search organizations to volunteer with or donate to.
