The public prominence of social issues is influencing how many organizations operate, and these organizations must determine the costs and benefits of taking a stand on the social change issues that affect their business.
At times, social change is championed by organizational leadership, employees, or customers, and, at other times, it is imposed on organizations by modifications in the law. Regardless of how it happens, leaders must be aware of the social forces that affect their businesses and the potential role their organization can play in driving social change.
Join our experts as they discuss:
- The pressure faced by organizations when it comes to social change issues;
- How organizations define and engage with social change issues; and
- How organizations can meet expectations when responding to social change issues
Who Should Attend: Organizational leaders in human resources, diversity and inclusion, community social responsibility, internal communications, leaders of employee networks, and any other function responsible for communicating to employees about social issues
