In the first phase of COVID-19, corporate citizenship professionals quickly sprang into action, increasing their firm’s philanthropy spending, expanding their employee relief programs, and introducing innovative virtual volunteer programs and partnerships with non-profit organizations to serve those most in need. Going forward will require responding to a broader set of health, economic, and social crises.

By attending this webcast, viewers will be able to:

  • Recieve a first look at new survey results that reveal how corporate citizenship and philanthropy executives globally are evolving their strategies and practices in response to the effects of COVID-19
  • Understand how citizenship performance goals and KPIs have shifted, how senior leaders are responding and engaging on citizenship issues, as well as corporate citizenship’s larger role in a company’s business strategy based on these results
  • Apply key strategies and tactics for engaging C-level executives and the board of directors on corporate citizenship matters
  • Prepare for regulatory changes (areas such as corporate taxation, labor and human rights, climate change, charitable giving, etc.) that might affect their future corporate citizenship programs
  • Discover how companies are taking action as a result of the outcry against racial injustice to inform their own strategies
  • Understand how corporate citizenship and philanthropy executives inspire change and what changed or should change in providing a voice for your company
