This week’s My Why highlights VBG’s Xavier White, a Corporate Social Responsibility and Innovation Marketing Manager based in London, England. He’s worked for Verizon for about three years, and he’s made a significant impact nearly as fast as he can solve a Rubik’s Cube, which he can do in about 45 seconds.

In addition to his volunteer work to support small businesses and working on Verizon’s first international event for 5G, the LGBTQA+ advocate prides himself on his newly launched CSR-themed podcast series, ChamberBreakers, which he co-hosts with Lianna Brinded of Yahoo Finance UK, and he says provides a “platform to communities that are often overlooked in the business world.”

While continuing to learn and grow in the CSR and innovation sectors, Xavier’s goals know no limits. “I also think Hans [Vestberg] has a really, really cool job,” he says, “and I would perhaps love to do that one day.”
