About This Talk
The world of corporate social responsibility is changing rapidly. Millennials, who now make up more than half of the workforce, care deeply about social impact, and increasingly expect employers to have a triple bottom line focus (people, planet, profit). Bold initiatives like Silicon Valley’s Giving Pledge have influenced business leaders, and companies of all sizes, to think differently. This high-impact panel will discuss how the role of CSR is changing, why companies that prioritize social impact consistently outperform the market, and what businesses can do now to avoid being left behind.
