Yana Prikhodko: The best time for good deeds is right now!

21 november 2022

On November 17 and 18, the city of Nadym hosted the Arctic of Kindness educational forum for volunteers representing energy sector companies. It was conducted at the initiative of Gazprom Dobycha Nadym and supported by the Arctic Volunteering Center. The event was attended by 100 employees of oil and gas companies and other organizations from Tyumen, the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug, and the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.

Forum participants had educational platforms set up for their use where they learned about teamwork, social design, stress-mitigation techniques, attended lectures by guest experts, and studied the experience of corporate volunteering.


Yana Prikhodko, an activist with the People Changing the World corporate volunteering program and a business partner of Zapsibtransgaz, presented SIBUR's best practices on this topic at the forum. She spoke about the company's key charitable and volunteer initiatives, and shared her personal experience of running and supervising Kind Caps, an environmental charity event in Nizhnevartovsk.


We have lots of volunteering options available at our company, both for newcomers and for people with experience in volunteering. For those who want to know more, we put on training webinars. But there are also people who start helping right away, learning the ropes in the process. So, if you have a desire to help, do it, because the best time to do good is right now! Yana Prikhodko, a business partner and corporate volunteer at Zapsibtransgaz, noted.
