As a global company, e2open is in a unique position to have a positive impact that is felt worldwide.  This year, we hosted our first annual Charitable Giving Week to empower our teams around the world to participate in charity and volunteer initiatives in the communities where we operate. During the month of September—with an emphasis on the week of September 25—each facility hosted local charity events to help us make this world a better place. Even our remote teams had an opportunity to get involved through e2unite, an Employee Resource Group (ERG) for remote e2open team members around the world.
