The last decade has seen rapid globalization, displacement of full time employees, mobile flexible work environments, EPS pressures that limit corporate philanthropy, and the transition to a service economy that is always on the road. The panelists will examine and discuss the essential role of Corporate Social Responsibility in communities and as a corporate strategy, the impact of the aforementioned environmental changes on non-profits, the need for employer driver volunteer engagement and the effect of corporate funding. Discussions will also examine the impact of changing demographics as Gen Xers and Millennials with a different perspective take on leadership and critical roles at employers and non-profits.
