Presented by Grantmakers Council of Rhode Island

Join us to learn more about how social impact can be a driver of business growth, and how a holistic approach to just principles can serve all stakeholders -- workers, customers, communities, the environment, and shareholders.

From a community bank to an international communications company and Russell 1000 corporations, we'll hear examples of how philanthropic and community values can impact internal operations and culture, as well as build stronger business models and fuel product development and consumer connections.

We'll also talk about recommendations for building support within your organization and the business case for prioritizing a social responsibility lens in decision-making.

C-suite, corporate philanthropy, ESG, marketing/PR, HR and other staff are encouraged to attend.
