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?

On Thursday, March 17, 2016, from 3:00 – 3:45 pm ET, we hosted a Twitter chat to discuss how to #DriveChange in companies through employee engagement, volunteerism and corporate social responsibility. Milinda Martin, Vice President of Community Investment at Time Warner Cable, and Peter Dudley, SVP of Community Support Programs at Wells Fargo—two iconic organizations in the CSR space—joined moderator Aman Singh, VP of Business + Social Purpose at Edelman. Participating Twitter handles included @CharitiesAtWork, @MilindaMartin, @TWC, @dudleypj, @Wells Fargo, @amansinghcsr and @EdelmanPurpose.

Charities@Work Webinar: Pro Bono Volunteerism

On Tuesday, April 12, at 1:00 PM ET, we hosted a webinar featuring Dr. Linda Gornitsky of LBG Associates on 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? Dr. Gornitsky shared the results of her latest research study, which examines the challenges of pro bono volunteerism and suggests solutions to help fix this imbalance.
