The Business of Social Impact - Webinar sponsored by Intact
October 26, 2022, 10:00 - 11:00 AM
Society’s expectations of business are changing – according to the 2022 Edelman Trust Barometer, more than half of customers and talent in Canada buy from and work with brands that share their values and beliefs. An effective social impact approach will help companies, including small ones, keep pace with a rapidly evolving society. This session will outline the fundamentals of social impact, the value it can bring and ways you can mobilize your business and employees to help others.
A special thank you to Intact for sponsoring this webinar!
