ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 21 /CSRwire/ -  Registration is now open for the 18th Annual Charities@Work Employee Engagement Summit on June 12-13, 2019, in New York City. This two-day peer-to-peer event brings together corporate citizenship and employee engagement professionals to learn and network, share promising practices, discuss the latest trends, and create greater social impact together.

I am proud to have been affiliated with this event for over a decade and have taken so much of what I have learned through the conference back to my professional practice with great results.”

Through interactive sessions and breakouts, the summit provides a forum for learning and effective practice exchange to engage the most pressing challenges facing today’s CSR professionals.
