Effectively incorporating racial equity in social impact is quickly becoming a top priority of corporate citizenship practitioners.  In the midst of the racial reckoning in the United States, consumers and employees alike demanded action and in response, companies expressed their commitments to racial justice across their business lines.  One of the most visible demonstrations of public statements in action is credible work in the community.  Join us for a conversation on how corporate citizenship professionals can support their companies’ commitment to equity and include equity in their community work, employee volunteerism, and impact measurement.
