Theme

Advancing Your Corporate Social Responsibility Agenda: Lessons from the Leaders
Corporate social responsibility is rapidly becoming recognized as a critical business strategy, to be integrated with all other aspects of the firm’s identity, goals, and actions. This program will explore how to make this happen in your organization by mainstreaming corporate social responsibility, making it a part of all aspects of operation, both internally and externally. Speakers will explore best practices that have helped them gain the positive branding of being seen as a leader in corporate social responsibility, while sharing the positive outcomes of their commitment with the internal and external stakeholders that benefit from their actions.
