Charities@Work Twitter Chat: #DriveChange
Let’s face it: to live in a better world, we have to act better. While a vision is often the starting point, it’s rarely enough to change behaviors or encourage good deeds. And what if you’re the only one who believes in doing well by doing good?
Join the live Twitter chat on Thursday, March 17, 2016, from 3:00 - 3:45 pm ET, and learn how to #DriveChange in your company through employee engagement, volunteerism and corporate social responsibility. Milinda Martin, Vice President of Corporate Citizenship at Time Warner Cable, and Peter Dudley, SVP of Community Support Programs at Wells Fargo—two iconic organizations in the CSR space—will join moderator Aman Singh, VP of Business + Social Purpose at Edelman, as she dives into questions such as:
- Why do they continue to invest in employee volunteerism?
- Should volunteerism be mandatory?
- Should employees be able to record independent volunteering in their companies’ tallies? Is that fair? What IS fair?
- Why do some companies choose to present externally created opportunities for their employees while others don’t?
- Why are some companies transparent about their activities, while others aren’t?
- Do methodically produced charts in annual CSR reports lead to better metrics? Better behavior?

Charities@Work Webinar: Pro Bono Volunteerism
Join us Tuesday, April 12, at 1:00 PM ET, for a free webinar titled “Pro Bono Volunteerism: Challenges and Solutions.” Pro bono volunteerism is hot with companies of all sizes trying to offer skills-based and pro bono volunteer opportunities to their employees. Although the popularity of this type of volunteerism has risen, the number of available opportunities has not. What is causing this imbalance and how can companies address this growing discrepancy?
Join us and listen to Dr. Linda Gornitsky of LBG Associates share the results of her latest research study, which examines the challenges of pro bono volunteerism and suggests solutions to help fix this imbalance. Register here: http://bit.ly/1VA9Xzr
