2017 Summit on Employee Engagement in Corporate Citizenship

We appreciate you.

Thank you for joining us at the 2017 Summit on Employee Engagement, held on Thursday, June 29, 2017, hosted by Guardian Life Insurance at their New York City headquarters. The Summit has concluded, but we invite you to continue to engage with the event content, with us, and with your peers across the corporate philanthropy landscape.

The 2017 Summit on Employee Engagement in Corporate Citizenship, presented by Charities@Work and ACCP, created a space for corporate professionals focused on workplace giving, corporate citizenship, CSR, and employee giving and engagement. Event participants discussed challenges and sought solutions across these practices.

The theme for this year’s conference was “The Apex of Engagement.” It brought together CSR practitioners and other stakeholders to share the latest advances and thinking on employee engagement within the context of corporate citizenship.
