CSR leaders are already registering for the 19th Annual Charities@Work Employee Engagement Summit, June 24-25, 2020, in New York City. This year’s summit is expanded to full two days, which includes two receptions plus evening outings, all to give corporate citizenship and employee engagement leaders more opportunities to network, share promising practices, discuss the latest trends, and create greater social impact together.

“Each year, the speakers and content at Charities@Work are relevant and timely,” said Heather Lofkin Wright, summit chair and responsible business leadership director at PwC US. “What I love most is the side conversations -- this event draws a diverse crowd of professionals with a ton of insights to offer. This strengthens my personal network as well as our profession overall. Every year I take away actionable ideas that help engage others in contributing in personally fulfilling ways and address pressing issues in our communities and marketplace.”

This year’s summit theme will focus on prioritizing authentic inclusion and belonging, to take global employee engagement and social impact to the next level. As always, the Summit provides a forum for effective practice exchange to address the most pressing challenges facing today’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), employee engagement and ESG professionals.
