Around the world today, 1.6 billion people live in substandard housing.
Through House+Home, Whirlpool Corporation’s comprehensive, global approach to corporate social impact, Whirlpool contributes to comfortable and nurturing places to live and supports resilient, thriving and sustainable communities.
In today’s episode, EFG’s Alli Murphy is joined by Whirlpool’s Deb O’Connor, Director of Global Corporate Communication and Community Relations, and Rosa Skinner, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager.
