Corporate Philanthropy and Social Impact: Engaging Employees, Serving Society, and Measuring Outcomes

DECEMBER 05 - 06, 2019 | NEW YORK LAW SCHOOL | NEW YORK, NY

December 05 - 06, 2019

About the Conference

The big question on many executive’s minds around corporate philanthropy is how to measure it. What metrics should we be using and what outcomes should we really be aiming for? This year’s event will blend sessions addressing the “business” of corporate philanthropy at the intersection of profit and purpose, and real-life scenarios to help build and sustain a culture of civic engagement. Discussions will address criteria for decision-making as related to corporate strategy, internal and external collaborations to accelerate real change and much more!  

Session Highlights Include:

  • Ways to maximize both the effect of your philanthropic initiatives and the benefit of those initiatives to your employees and business
  • Viewing grant portfolios in a data-driven way, evaluating total cost and program efficacy
  • Social impact is not an add-on for the next generation of leaders—it is a requirement
  • Sustaining employee engagement when it comes to CSR initiatives
  • Government, tech, culture, and investment: Connecting the four quadrants of meaningful change
  • What steps companies should take to optimize programs intended to engage consumers in their work at the intersection of purpose and profit
  • Ensuring collaboration between corporations and the nonprofits they support
  • Philanthropy in action: educating refugees, working with at risk youth and serving those affected by military deaths
