Many issues, including volunteerism, will take the spotlight.

Other sessions will include a Special Edition of Conversations with Stephen—a live webcast, in conjunction with a tweetchat—where BCLC’s Stephen Jordan and Carol Cone, Global Practice Chair, of Edelman Business + Social Purpose, will discuss the results of the 2012 goodpurpose® study which explores consumer attitudes around social purpose and its implications for corporate citizenship.
To close the conference, leaders from Microsoft, FSG, and Intel will join BCLC's Stephen Jordan in a vibrant debate about CSR: Is it philanthropy or a core business solution? What about social innovation? Does CSR drive business results?
