How Corporate Philanthropy Meets the Moment

Tuesday, May 7, 2024
01:00 PM - 02:00 PM PDT

In the ever-evolving landscape of corporate philanthropy, driving meaningful progress toward shared social and environmental objectives has become paramount. However, increased scrutiny, backlash, and boycotts underscore the complex challenges facing today’s corporate philanthropic leaders. How can companies effectively balance these priorities while remaining responsive to stakeholder expectations and consumer needs? How do they proactively address backlash and mitigate reputational risks through transparent communication? When do they get loud versus staying the course, albeit under the radar? In this session, corporate foundation practitioners will explore innovative strategies and best practices for navigating this dynamic, and often fraught, terrain—as they strive to be catalyst for positive change.
