We Help People Work Together
Press / In the News
Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2017 annual donation survey. We are pleased to announce this year’s donation went to IRIS – Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services in New Haven, CT. IRIS helps refugees on the road to self-sufficiency by providing lifesaving support during their transition to life in the United States. IRIS case managers greet refugees and take them to apartments–rented by IRIS and furnished with donated furniture. After being served a warm, culturally appropriate meal and after having a good night’s sleep, our clients will begin the initial work of being integrated into the fabric of the United States.
Refugee resettlement is a demanding, self-help program with only modest funding from the federal government, but with support from the staff at IRIS, together with the community, most refugees quickly adjust to their new country and become self-sufficient.

What happens when over 400 people spend 8 months talking about a place they cherish? An ambitious 10-year strategy to “make art matter” through engagement with 1 million visitors and by adding $1B of superlative art to an extraordinary collection in a transformative space!
The Cleveland Museum of Art released its new 10-year strategic plan, “Making Art Matter,” on Nov. 1, 2017. The plan establishes aspirational goals for audience development and community support. OPG is proud to have partnered with CMA to create this plan. The result is the outcome of substantive and extensive conversations among the CMA trustees and staff, as well as external stakeholders, and a team from OPG led by Laura Freebairn-Smith.
Human resource professionals are the “stress absorbers” for their organizations and often for individuals in the organization. They occupy a special niche in the organizational ecosystem – a critical one for the success of all companies.

President Trump recently made the decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Agreement on climate change.
In 2016, the Paris Agreement marked a turning point in the battle against climate change. World leaders from across the globe united for the first time in history to legally ratify action against pollution through the United Nations Framework Convention. According to a recent poll from the Associated Press and the University of Chicago’s NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, it was found that 46% of Americans either strongly or somewhat oppose the U.S. withdrawing from the agreement.
OPG stands in support the Paris Climate Accord and encourages you to show your support by adding your voice in moving towards a 100% clean energy economy. Together, we can make the world better!
