Over the past 12 months, several challenges and opportunities have shaped the way we approach corporate social responsibility (CSR). Global forces like the climate strike, the Blackrock statement, COVID-19 and the economic crisis have hit the world in waves. These external factors along with the drive to integrate CSR into HR, sales, client services and other essential internal operational units are redefining the field.
CSR professionals are working hard to embrace change and adjust their priorities and plans to fit the new normal. And they are trying to figure out the ROI on this adjustment. The B:CIVIC Summit is designed to support professionals as they (re)define CSR for the next decade.
During our annual conference on Oct. 22, we will explore best practices, find inspiration from our peers, and hear from experts who can guide us as we continue to focus on the business of making an impact in our communities.
We look forward to hosting a dynamic and engaging B:CIVIC Summit on Oct. 22 and sincerely hope to be able to gather in person for this event. We will be closely monitoring COVID-19 developments in the coming months and planning an exceptional event around the guiding principle of protecting the health and well-being of all participants. As the event nears, we will keep you informed of the precautions we are taking to ensure the safety of our attendees, partners and communities.
