Driving Social Good and Change through the Power of the Workplace

Through access to networks, employees and customers, the workplace – regardless of size, sector or purpose – has the unique power to act as force multipliers to impact social change and make a difference. This session will explore the various ways that employees and entrepreneurs can use a work or corporate infrastructure to give back, volunteer and make an impact locally, domestically or globally. This session will use experiences from real-life change agents to offer inspiration and advice for how you can engage and make a difference within your workplace. Attendees will explore:

  • How to find out if your company has employee networks dedicated around these initiatives
  • How to start an initiative if your organization doesn’t already have something
  • How to work with your company to ensure that corporate and social responsibility is part of their mission
  • How to integrate philanthropy and social responsibility into the mission and financials of your small business
