For 75 years, companies like yours have used benchmarking of The Conference Board on corporate citizenship to develop philanthropic programs that are positioned to add value. Earlier this month, we launched an expanded initiative to benchmark societal investments and align that data with our existing social outcomes research, enabling us to help you make smarter decisions, improve stakeholder partnerships, and ultimately enhance social impact.
We ask that you participate today at www.conference-board.org/societalinvestmentsurvey.
The survey is open to corporate citizenship professionals at companies globally and corporate foundations of all sizes, until the end of March. The results of the survey, to be published later this year, will aggregate and segment survey data by multiple dimensions, including geography, business sector, company size, and the social area benefitting from investments.
Additionally, we're pleased to announce a call for entries for the Excellence in Marketing and Communications Awards. For 14 years, these prestigious awards have recognized individuals and organizations innovating within the marketing and communications fields for business and social good.
The Conference Board has led the way in corporate citizenship since 1943 as a convener and thought partner. Our mission continues to be relevant to today’s businesses: to be a trusted source of Insights to help our Members anticipate "What's Ahead," improve their performance, and better serve society. It will be fun to see what the next 75 years brings!
