PLANO, Texas, Mar. 27 /CSRwire/ – YourCause, LLC, an industry leader in corporate philanthropic and employee engagement solutions, will gather corporate partners and employee engagement professionals this month at their annual CSRworks Summit with the largest gathering in the event’s eight-year history. The 2018 Summit will be held Tuesday and Wednesday, March 27 and 28, at the Westin Stonebriar Hotel and Golf Club in Frisco, Texas and at YourCause headquarters. The invite-only conference features two days of strategic discussion and topical sessions on corporate social responsibility and employee engagement. Attendees will have multiple opportunities to discuss and learn about industry trends through data-driven presentations, peer-led workshops, and other sessions packed with industry insights, best practices, and case studies.
“For the eighth straight year, YourCause is proud to host the CSRworks summit and facilitate conversations with and among our clients. Our corporate partners have long told us of the value they find in this event and the connections they make each year, but I want to emphasize how important this gathering is to the YourCause team as well,” says Matt Combs, YourCause founder and CEO. “Our team understands that listening to our clients is critical to staying ahead of new CSR industry trends and the evolution of our partners’ own CSR programs. CSRworks represents two of the most important days of our year and helps define our strategic priorities for the year ahead.”
CSRworks is built upon innovation through collaboration and best-practice sharing in presentations and roundtables facilitated by notable philanthropy professionals and YourCause executives. The conference also provides attendees and prospective clients with a preview of future YourCause products and an introduction to newly released platform features developed with the input of the Global Good Network. YourCause is excited to host speakers including Sue Stephenson, Interim CEO of IMPACT2030 and Meredith Ferguson, Managing Director at TMI Strategy.
In response to the latest industry data and in consultation with members of the YourCause Global Good Network, the 2018 CSRworks agenda will include sessions on digital-first engagement strategies, devising a proactive rather than reactive disaster response plan, tips for advocating a strong business case for CSR, universal corporate philanthropy measurement standards, engaging employees around the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and much more.
