The most successful strategies begin with exciting visions and bold goals that capture imaginations and inspire action. What does it mean for your corporate giving and employee engagement efforts to embrace a big vision? What is your company's bold goal for employee engagement? Join your corporate philanthropy peers from across the region for an interactive session that dives into examples of big visions and bold goals for corporate giving. We will hear from our colleagues about current programs and have the opportunity to unpack and strategize around the finer details of advancing breakthrough corporate giving programs within our organizations.
