CSR creates substantial business value worthy of competition – brand recognition, reputation, customers, talent, etc. At the same time, however, many of the social challenges at the heart of CSR objectives are part of “mega-problems” like poverty, human rights, or population health that no single company has the resources, knowledge, or scale to effectively tackle. Join your corporate colleagues for lunch as we explore how some companies are partnering on community solutions to achieve greater impact.

Guest speakers:

  • Sally Scott Marietta, IBM
  • Maritha Gay, Kaiser Permanente
  • Amy Nakamoto, Discovery Education
  • Laura Hayman, Booz Allen Hamilton
