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.
