The Corporate Philanthropy and Social Impact: Engaging Employees, Serving Society and Measuring Impact Conference will address the “business” of corporate philanthropy at the intersection of profit and purpose to help build and maintain a culture of civic engagement.
Beginning with a pre-conference on Dec. 4, industry leaders will guide workshops to help participants understand the key issues facing corporate social responsibility practitioners and present them with tools for success as they prepare to take on expanding roles. During the conference on Dec. 5-6, speakers will discuss how corporations can develop and execute strategies that accelerate real change, both internally and externally.
Bob Axelrod, senior vice president based in FleishmanHillard’s St. Louis headquarters, will host the CSR/ESG Reporting and Authentic Leadership workshop on Dec. 4. During the session, Axelrod will discuss and offer solutions to the communications and marketing issues impacting citizenship practitioners.
With more than 20 years of sustainability communications experience, Axelrod helps clients develop CSR strategies, platforms, programming and reporting to improve their standings in top sustainability rankings. He has overseen the development of dozens of sustainability reports, including co-developing FleishmanHillard’s proprietary method for evaluating and scoring companies’ alignment with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
