Colorado is a leader in social responsibility. Organizations are advancing the way they support employees, engaging with the community and advocating for the biggest social and justice issues of our time. Leaders are stepping up to take action to make meaningful change and deliver value through purpose-driven organizations.

Navigating complex social issues, finding a meaningful role, working effectively with partners and mobilizing stakeholders is a journey that takes commitment and skills to make effective social change. It takes true leadership to make it happen.

Join Denver leaders from Comcast, Denver Parks and Recreation and Food Bank of the Rockies for an honest conversation on leadership, effective social change, action and how organizations can use their brand for good.
