Redefining Corporate Social Responsibility
March 27 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am$20 – $50
Stakeholders expect companies to take an active role in improving the communities they do business, work, live and play. The function of corporate social responsibility has become interwoven into many communication operations. However, there are still numerous companies that still operate without a clear strategic plan, don’t understand best practices or deliver CSR programs with authenticity.
With the guidance of Temple University CSR graduate professor, Gregg Feistman and other experts, you’ll learn about compelling global, regional and local programs and case studies from well-established companies and start-ups that are making a difference. You’ll get to actively network among others trying to (re)define their own CSR programs and/or discover potential collaboration with groups who offer dynamic solutions for community engagement.
