2018 Corporate Philanthropy Conference

Engagement in an Age of Activism and Outrage
DECEMBER 04 - 05, 2018 | NEW YORK LAW SCHOOL | NEW YORK, NY

December 04 - 05, 2018

Challenges You May Be Facing

In corporate philanthropy you are tasked with addressing complex, polarizing, and fast-moving issues on a public stage. This can feel like navigating a minefield, especially when employees now expect employers to take a more serious approach to causes and issues. Meanwhile, how do you satisfy social media users, community partners, and regulators who are demanding a fast and sophisticated response from companies?

About the Conference

Just in time to finalize your 2019 planning, this event will equip you with new strategies, ideas, data, and tools to refresh your existing social impact and stakeholder engagement programs. Starting from the inside out, leading practitioners will delve into growing employee expectations, which require unprecedented collaboration between corporate citizenship, HR, and communications teams.

Join innovators and peers from the front lines to gain new insights for handling issues you never thought you’d need to address. From discussions on #MeToo and #NeverAgain to immigration and diversity, this event will provide best practices, case studies, and practical tools for the uncertain, high-stakes road ahead.
