Panel Discussions and Working Groups
Participants of the 2013 Summit will be invited to contribute to one of three topic-specific Working Groups. The three topics for this year’s Summit are a) Disaster Relief, b) International Engagement, and c) Workplace Giving. The groups will convene on the second day of the Summit to address the obstacles, solutions and long term goals within each topic. A panel of experts will begin the session by framing a ‘big picture’ for the topic. Groups will then be guided through a process of sharing insights, exploring the assets within each network and outlining the steps that could be taken to overcome barriers, implement solutions and further the ability of corporations to effectively engage employees in each area.
