As the worldwide footprint of business expands, companies need to refine scope of their global philanthropic program. Multi-national corporations from around the world seek insights on how to provide targeted social investments that best serve a wide variety of areas and populations, while adding to the larger value of the company at home and abroad.  Faced with a complex landscape in these new locations, many companies are looking for a “map” of what globally effective philanthropic practices look like.

This September, The Conference Board will convene a Research Working Group (RWG) that would address these issues.  This RWG includes member companies American Express, HSBC, General Mills, Caterpillar, Intel, Deere & Co., CIGNA and others who will work together with researchers to develop a game plan to answer: How can corporations develop an international philanthropy approach that recognizes each region’s uniqueness and achieves meaningful outcomes for both the recipients and the firm?

Corporate philanthropy professionals are invited to attend this webcast to learn more about the nature and scope of the project; the time and financial commitment; and the output of the group and how it will benefit and enhance their current international philanthropic pursuits.

Research Working Groups are only available to member companies of The Conference Board and typically last six months.  Two executives from each company partner with researchers and their peers to jointly review existing and needed data and frameworks. The RWG will result in a series of comprehensive overviews that detail findings, and conclusions and recommendations for 5-8 global regions.

Audience:  This webcast and Research Working Group will be of interest to corporate philanthropy professionals of multi-national companies.
