KING OF PRUSSIA, PA — CSL’s Global Chief Human Resources Officer Elizabeth Walker has been appointed to the Urban League of Philadelphia’s Board of Directors.

“I am honored to be part of this group,” Walker said. “In providing life-saving medicines in more than 100 countries, CSL is committed to ensuring people of every background and demographic have a place and a voice at our company, but I believe we also have a responsibility to help address the inequities in the communities where we live and do business. This partnership allows us to do both – drawing on the Urban League’s century of experience as we work within our own walls to provide our people the opportunity to invest time and resources toward initiatives proven to uplift underserved groups in our communities.”

With the history of public health challenges impacting urban communities, I applaud CSL for recognizing these disparities and lending their support and resources to address these long-standing issues.”

With its U.S. headquarters in the greater Philadelphia region, CSL and the Urban League of Philadelphia are working to address some of the most pressing needs in the community, including efforts to strengthen Public Health, Leadership Development, Workforce Diversity and Job Creation and Training.
