Join your corporate philanthropy peers for a discussion on The ROI of CSR: Where to begin?, a joint meeting hosted by ACCP and Philanthropy Northwest. In order for a CSR program to align with and support a company’s core business strategy, the CSR team must be aligned and integrated with key functions with profit, loss, and cost control responsibilities. In some companies that is already happening; in others, the process has not yet begun.
You’ll hear Steve Rochlin, Co-CEO of IO Sustainability and lead author of Project ROI, discuss the potential ROI that CSR can deliver and what you should be doing to future proof your CR programs. (Hint: one of the first steps is to work internally with other departments to build integration.) You’ll also hear from a panel of CSR executives that are working with other departments on CSR and gain insight from their hits and misses.
Garland Yates, Community Democracy Workshop | At Community Democracy Workshop, we work with residents to put them in more powerful positions to help change their communities. With institutional stakeholders, this community democracy approach might be unsettling, but we have to help them feel comfortable about walking into a process that potentially is confrontational. We must concentrate on making space around the table safe. Not false or phony, but safe. Residents and representatives from institutions will need to be honest and frank with each other and address real issues, but in a productive manner. We must use our influence and role to help create that kind of environment so that our communities can have the power and capacity to see the changes they want to see. more »

Erin Thomas, Talent Partner and Board Liaison | After seven years working at EarthCorps, developing a new generation of global environmental leaders, I decided to move into the talent partner and board liaison position at Philanthropy Northwest to continue growing my skills and exploring the social sector from a new lens. In my new role, I hope to strengthen Philanthropy Northwest’s organizational culture, leadership development and the teams that ultimately impact our members and the sector as a whole. Two weeks into this position and I have already found myself in a high-level board meeting strategizing our next three-to-five years, and at the launch of our three-state Momentum Fellowship to empower and encourage diversity and equity in philanthropy. I look forward to working with our network and meeting more of you at our upcoming events. more »
