April 22, 2021, at 11AM EDT | ACCP Presents: Unpacking the "S" of ESGs | Webinar

ACCP welcomes Georgie Erangey, Director, Brodie Partners, for an educational webcast. The coronavirus pandemic has shone a spotlight on how companies manage environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues – supply chains transformed overnight, health and safety came to the forefront, and climate change remained a top agenda item. As the world emerges from the pandemic, we will be faced with more inequality, greater transparency and the ‘S’ within ESG will grow in importance. In this session, we will define the elements of ESG and focus on the rise of the ‘S’, identifying specific social issues that companies will be grappling with, such as: the call to action on diversity, equity, and inclusion; and the importance of working conditions, responsible supply chain, and human rights.

Corporate citizenship leaders are asking what they can be doing differently—and better—now and in the years to come, to build more sustainable, equitable, and inclusive workplaces and communities.

The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship—along with convening sponsor Wells Fargo —invite you to connect with expert CSR colleagues, learn practical strategies for deepening engagement, and be inspired to set and achieve ambitious goals in community involvement, environmental sustainability, and more.
