Getting the Triple Win, Exploring Multi-National Pro Bono Programs, and more
The Global Pro Bono Summit is an annual invitation-only gathering of leaders from across sectors and around the world with a shared vision to make the talents and skills of the entire business community accessible to organizations serving our collective good.
The term pro bono is most often used to describe free legal services provided by law firms, which assign a percentage of their associates’ time to helping those in need of legal advice, but who cannot afford it. Many organizations have emerged to formalize and focus this activity, notably, the pioneering Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts, founded in 1969 in New York City, and now a generic term for similar arts legal advisory organizations throughout the country.
Corporate social responsibility representatives from over 30 companies convened at SPUR in San Francisco where hundreds of colorful sticky notes helped guide the dynamic and interactive conversations around pro bono and employee engagement.
