The Acceleration of Purpose
Over the last decade, Corporate Social Responsibility (CRS) has rapidly evolved. No longer something that happens within a silo in a corporate Foundation or community relations team, companies are now looking to their Corporate Social Responsibility or Social Impact professionals for strategies that holistically enhance corporate value, customer relationships and brand reputation. And they are looking for sophisticated nonprofit partners to help them achieve impact and meet their goals.

The companies that are winning are the ones that have taken a hard look at what issues they have been addressing and why, and upon refinement, integrating those issues into relationship marketing, targeted communications, employee satisfaction tactics and public relations efforts. This one-hour session for cause partnerships professionals of all levels taught by Catalist’s Maureen Carlson and featuring direct insights from Planet Fitness's Dineen Boyle provides a look at the public-private partnerships landscape, including Catalist’s newly-released 2019 Acceleration of Purpose Report, summarizing the most pressing marketplace trends and insights for the year ahead. This webinar will cover topics including:

• Review of the most significant 2019 leading marketplace trends, helping you cut through the clutter and guide your priorities for the coming year
• CSR executive insights, including access to tips from leaders at Planet Fitness, Mondelez, QVC, The Honest Company and more
• Innovative industry examples reflecting the identified trends
• Maureen’s actionable insights and guide for both brands and nonprofits on the steps to take now to ensure your company or partnership does not fall behind

An industry favorite, this annual webinar is essential for companies and nonprofits seeking opportunities to innovate and refresh their social impact within a constantly-evolving landscape.
