November 27, 2023 / Learn / News Domaine Serene Announces 2023 Vertical Initiative Winners

Ahivoy Graduation 2022

At Domaine Serene, we are deeply committed to creating positive change and giving back to the communities we serve. For the fourth year running, we are proud to participate in a program we established called the Vertical Initiative. In addition to our long-standing partnerships, the Vertical Initiative was created to be an employee-led program to empower our staff to nominate charities to whom we gift.

We recognize that every individual has unique values and passions, and by involving our staff in the nomination and voting process, we ensure that our contributions align with our shared commitment to making the world a better place.

Through the Vertical Initiative, we have an opportunity to contribute to organizations that are near and dear to our employees' hearts to create lasting and meaningful change.

As we celebrate Giving Tuesday, we are thrilled to announce the winners of the 2023 Vertical Initiative.
