CHESTNUT HILL, Mass., Sep. 29 /CSRwire/ - The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship, Carroll School of Management is pleased to announce its 2016 International Corporate Citizenship Conference, a 2.5 day event uniquely tailored to corporate citizenship practitioners that brings experts from around the world to learn, grow, and network.

With support from convening sponsor UPS, the 2016 International Corporate Citizenship Conference will be held in Atlanta, Georgia from March 20 through the 22. This year, the event will center on the theme: Global Citizens/Local Communities. Participants will learn how to create and execute innovative programs, partnerships, and solutions to create positive change across the globe—one community at a time.

“Our global economy has yielded unprecedented economic and social progress.  It also demands more of us.  We are affected by environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues around the world.  In this context, we can effect positive change in our local and global communities,” said Katherine V. Smith, executive director at the Center for Corporate Citizenship. “Those that attend the 2016 International Corporate Citizenship Conference will learn how to get the greatest possible social and business value from corporate citizenship investments by connecting with peers and experts to discuss how global issues will affect their companies at home, as well as how their local efforts can contribute to global progress.” 

Registration for the Conference is now open, and special pricing is available for those that sign up early. The Conference admits only corporate citizenship practitioners and industry leaders in order to foster a free flow of discussion and debate for more effective engagement and feedback. Register today to:

  • take part in seven general sessions and be inspired by keynote speakers.

  • join more than 600 corporate citizenship leaders and thinkers from top companies for two networking breaks, two receptions, an on-site volunteer event, and a number of industry summits.
