Now more than ever, brands are expected to take social and environmental action by their employees, investors, and customers.
However, oftentimes, corporations rely on diffuse, uncoordinated programming rather than a unified corporate social responsibility platform.
Presenters from the social impact sector will discuss how international corporations can maximize their positive impacts on the
social and environmental systems in which they operate by designing cogent strategies that align with their core business.
