CLxLIVE: ep.1 // Social Impact (Event Wrap-up)
Listen in to our first episode of CLxLIVE: an online conversation where culture builders can watch business leaders air their thoughts on the intersection of culture and their expertise. This month we heard about the culture of social impact with The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Dave Kim and social impact designer Denise Gershbein.
In this online discussion you’ll learn:
- How social impact and company culture relate
- How a company can strengthen the link between their social impact programs and company culture
- How a company build authenticity into their social impact program so it accurately reflects the causes their employees support
- The pitfalls when making social impact a chief part of a company’s identity
