Companies are under pressure from all stakeholders to have all programs/operations reflect their market/customers and/or employee base.  Hiring and HR managers must demonstrate this commitment as must community affairs/philanthropy initiatives.  Companies are now looking to these two departments to help achieve the diversity and inclusion goals that the marketplace expects of best in class companies. 

This webcast will discuss:

  • How companies are increasing the coordination between corporate philanthropy/community affairs departments and corporate initiatives around diversity and inclusion.
  • How to link the corporate diversity & inclusion goals more closely with community partnerships.
  • The benefits of introducing a new metric into corporate philanthropy initiatives and defining measurement strategies

Audience:  Human Resources professionals responsible for Diversity & Inclusion, corporate foundation and philanthropy executives responsible for community outreach, and public affairs executives responsible for community relations.
