MAKING AN IMPACT: Corporate Social Innovation and the Future of Giving
Technology has made charitable giving easier than ever.
We enter a couple numbers in a box, push confirm and we’re done. Although the process of giving has become more accessible, there is no denying that technology has also made it harder for us to engage and connect directly to the impact.
Committing time and energy away from our busy lives is tough. So, what do we do?
How do we not only give with our wallets but also with our minds and hearts? How much of this is the responsibility of the companies we work for?
This SKETCHTalks series will feature industry leaders as they discuss the future of corporate social innovation and organizations’ role in helping their own employees truly engage in accelerating social growth within the communities they operate.
Join us at the SKETCH Creative Hub on Thursday, May 4th for breakfast and change-making conversations about the future of giving.
