Empowering Employees to be Change Agents for Minority Communities

Empowering Employees to be Change Agents for Minority Communities

Younger generations in the workforce don’t just want to sit by and wait for their companies to fix society problems – they want to be active advocates of solutions. Increasingly, employers are judged by their contributions to society, and businesses that disregard this expectation will lose out in the war for talent.

Our guests will speak to the dual benefits of corporate philanthropic programs – while tremendously helpful to their intended recipients (diverse communities and small businesses), they are also important tools for improving employee engagement, given the current work climate that is ridden with high anxiety, search for purpose and disillusionment in the social support system.
