July 14, 11:30 AM ET | The Listen Up! Show - July Edition: The Pros Talk Measurement: Finding the Real 'S' in Social Impact | Webinar

Understanding the importance of accountability towards achieving results and telling the story of impactful programming should be based on rigorous and verifiable data, for both CSR and ESG. Monitoring (measuring), and evaluation is not just about crunching numbers, analyzing indicators, and getting results. It's about knowing which questions to ask. For U.S. Agency for International Development, European Union, United Nations, private foundations such as the Gates Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, investors, and other stakeholders, monitoring (measuring), evaluation, and learning is an essential element to achieving development goals, ensuring accountability to those in need, donors, improving ongoing and future projects and meeting the SDGs. Th RW Institute and Atlantic Corporate Volunteer Council welcome Nadine Ritcheson and Dr. Richard Columbia from P3 for Humanity to discuss how the corporate world can learn from the international development world to leverage to improve impact in a new era of CSR and ESG.

July 20, 1:00 to 2:30 PM ET | Trust-Based Philanthropy Virtual Summer Learning Series | Webinar

The Trust-Based Philanthropy Project, in partnership with Philanthropy Missouri, Grantmakers of Oregon and Southwest Washington, Grantmakers of Western Pennsylvania, and New Mexico Association of Grantmakers, Philanthropy Colorado, and Connecticut Council on Philanthropy are pleased to announce a three-part virtual series on the values and practices of what it means to be a trust-based grantmaker. While the journey of trust-based philanthropy can be at times uncomfortable, for many trust-based grantmakers, this journey IS our work. Why? Because in addition to offering more space and flexibility for nonprofits to focus their time and resources where they are most needed, it also helps funders learn more deeply about the efforts that we support. Join us for a summer learning series where we’ll unpack these benefits, dive deep into the six principles of trust-based philanthropy, and illuminate next steps in your trust-based philanthropy journey. Each session will include 60 minutes of presentations and discussion, followed by 30-minute small group breakouts where you’ll get to discuss and determine next steps on your own trust-based journey.

July 28, 2:00 PM ET | Supporting Global Employees Impacted by COVID-19 | Webinar

ACCP Presents welcomes Melissa Britton, Manager, Social Responsibility at Blackbaud and Amber Skalsky, VP, Community Engagement at PIMCO to present an educational webcast. Companies operating globally need to support their employees and communities around the world as they face the hardships from the impacts of COVID-19. The support required may look different as each country faces different issues. The world health organization estimates that 3.3 billion people in the global workforce are at risk of losing their livelihoods and that poses an existential threat to millions of enterprises. In the COVID-19 crisis food security, public health and employment and labor issues, in particular workers’ health and safety converge. Different forms of support are key. Many companies recognize the opportunity to build programs to support crisis response efforts and develop long-term sustainable goals to address the health, social and economic impacts of the pandemic.
