Corporate philanthropy is designed to achieve a societal end while meeting the corporate goals. 

Speakers at this event will discuss how it is possible for a business to achieve meaningful growth, maximise profitability, drive innovation, and at the same time, address some of the most important societal challenges facing communities.  It will address the doing good vs. preventing harm issues and risks.

We will explore the different approaches to corporate philanthropy, the changing role of corporate social responsibility and the making of philanthropy a crucial aspect of corporate culture, impact investing, and the role of corporate foundations in driving a positive change in society — achieving the SDGs. 

During Episode 25 of Philanthropy Impact’s Walk in my shoes series, we discussed different approaches to corporate philanthropy and the role of corporate foundations.

Join us and go deeper into the topic including trends and the use of digital technology.
