A Pro Bono Factory against inequalities in the Île-de-France region

En visioconférence

  • On November 17, 2020
  • On November 19, 2020

On 17th and 19th November, the Pro Bono Lab association, with the support of Paris La Défense, invites 150 volunteers to share their skills in the service of 15 associations. This year, the reduction of inequalities in Île-de-France will be at the heart of the exchanges organised in digital format to respond to the context of the health crisis.

The Pro Bono Lab

Since 2015, the Pro Bono Lab association, at the initiative of this annual event, has been committed to meeting major societal challenges by promoting "skills sharing" between professionals from companies and associations in the Paris Region. >> Find out more about the association

The Pro Bono Factory 2020

In partnership with the Association pour l'emploi des cadres (APEC), this special edition is open to external volunteers, such as jobseekers, to expand the Pro Bono commitment.

The sessions will be spread over two days, on 17 and 19 November, by videoconference via Discord. Each association will benefit from two Pro Bono half-days, during which the 150 volunteers, divided into teams of 10, will be asked to raise and respond to an association's problems so that it can best identify solutions. Together, their mission is to build a "deliverable" for the association at the end of these two half-days: a file detailing the recommendations and the dedicated action plan.
