Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia invites you to join us on Friday, September 15th for a day of thought-provoking discussion and hands-on training focused on the importance of Corporate Citizenship to the future of business.

In today's world it is critical that businesses demonstrate the value of their Corporate Citizenship both internally and externally. During this workshop, we’ll delve into the latest thinking on measuring the return on investment (ROI) of corporate citizenship and how to effectively communicate its value to various stakeholders.

There is a growing awareness that businesses can build a sustainable competitive advantage, while also creating positive and lasting change for individuals, shareholders and communities. Even traditional foundations, corporate venture capitalists and Fortune 500 companies have noticed -- corporate citizenship is value-creating!

Keynote: 21st Century Corporate Philanthropy

Dave Stangis will share some of what he has learned in his more than 15 years creating and leading CSR strategies and programs at Intel Corporation and the Campbell Soup Company. There are ways to tap into emerging trends, your organization’s purpose in society and core business processes to deliver measureable value to your business and your community. Dave will join us for an exclusive visit to share his knowledge and insights on this increasingly mandatory aspect of doing business in the 21st century.

Following the morning keynote, we will delve into essential hands-on training for the 21st century corporate citizen.
