Personal message from Angela Ahrendts, Non-Executive Chair at Save the Children.

In one of the Humanizing Growth Series episodes, the IRG interviewed Angela Ahrendts. The former CEO of Burberry and SVP of Apple Retail explained how she used the power of authenticity and vulnerability in her leadership by creating three-minute videos to talk to her 55.000 colleagues. Last week, she created a one-minute video for her +820.000 followers on LinkedIn.

“Hi there, we are all horrified by what’s happening in Ukraine and it breaks your heart like it does mine. And you’ve been searching for a way that you can help. I just want to let you know that Save the Children has been on the ground in Ukraine since 2014 and that they’re there now, and they are at the borders. Serving 7.5 million children and their families that are fleeing their homes and the crossfires.

I begin chairing Save the Children 1,5 years ago. And I only share that, so you can rest assured that any support goes immediately and directly to Ukrainian families. So please there is a link below. Go to Save the Children and find the Ukraine appeal. Spread the word to families and friends. To your company. Challenge your company to match your donations. We need to continue to pray to continue to support the people of Ukraine. thank you for anything you can do thank you for all your help, thank you.”
