While we prepare our annual list of CSR and corporate volunteering conferences, we’d like to give you a heads up about one of our favorites taking place in New York this spring. From March 28-30, the Charities@Work Annual Summit will tackle the topic of employee engagement in corporate citizenship. Emceed by Realized Worth co-founder Chris Jarvis, the conference will welcome sought-after speakers like Michael Norton of Harvard Business School and Jeffrey Vargas, the Chief Learning Officer for the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Register here and then let us know you’ll be there – we’d love to see you!
While you’re registering, take a moment to nominate a deserving employee or company for the 2016 Corporate Impact Awards. Submissions wrap up on February 8, 2016, so don’t miss your chance!
The awards are given out under the categories of Corporate Excellence and Individual Partner of the Year.
The Corporate Excellence Award
Honors one corporation for overall excellence in philanthropic giving, employee engagement, or Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Nominations are open to any company with an employee giving and volunteer program.
The Individual Partner of the Year Award
Given to an employee of a major company who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to make a difference in her or his community. This award also recognizes the individual who works to advance engagement (giving, volunteerism and education) within their company and who has served as an exceptional partner to nonprofit partners. Individual Partner award candidates must come from a company that has a giving or broader employee engagement program.
