On October 5, 2017, Umalia, an organization that helps businesses realize the tremendous potential of their commitment to social responsibility, celebrated its 5-year anniversary. Mirella De Civita, President of Papillon MDC Inc. had the pleasure of attending the event while also taking the floor, addressing the important strategic work Umalia does with business leaders as they look for true purpose that goes beyond corporate growth.
