Words Matter: Driving Social Impact with Inclusive Language

Language is ever evolving. Integrating inclusive language across internal and external communications doesn’t just happen, it requires a continual practice of knowledge acquisition and assessment. If done right, it’s integral to building a purposeful brand. If neglected, it can cause serious damage. Join this session as our speakers share how they adopted a corporate lexicon reflecting their DEI commitments and how vital community partners and key stakeholders can be in informing the language your organization adopts.

CSR and ESG: Demonstrating Business Value and Social Impact in the Face of ESG Backlash

Solidifying the link between CSR and ESG can lead to exciting opportunities for corporate citizenship professionals. However, the lack of sector-wide standards around social impact reporting makes it challenging to know just what kind of data to collect—and how to measure it well. In this session, we’ll explain how to develop a strategy, evaluate your impact, and leverage your results to capture the “S” in ESG (and CSR), even in an anti-ESG environment.

Maureen Flynn, Vice President & Leah Brody, Managing Director

Engage, Inspire & Collaborate: Getting Social Impact Storytelling Right
Despite developing thoughtful and effective social impact strategies, many companies – even those with the most sophisticated social impact and corporate responsibility programs – face challenges articulating how their efforts connect to the business, identifying the “thing” they should be known for, and successfully reaching stakeholders through inspiring stories. In this session you will learn a step-by-step framework to structure your social impact communications strategy, with the goal of developing more memorable and impactful storytelling that enables deeper stakeholder connections.

Ashley Wilson Oster, VP and Director of Marketing and Partnerships

Tackling Threats to Employee Well-being

How can companies support the well-being of their workforce in a way that creates positive impact for individuals in need and the companies they serve? Companies are asking themselves this question now more than ever before as a challenging confluence of events – climate disasters, geopolitical events, shifting economic conditions – negatively affects not only the workforce, but also the supply chain and the broader community.

Businesses have been investing in workforce wellness for years, but data shows employees aren’t feeling the love: 54% of employees don’t believe their current company cares about their well-being, and 76% say they are more attracted to companies who do. So what’s the solution?

Join E4E Relief’s Ashley Wilson Oster as she discusses:

  • The biggest threats to employee well-being and how these can also impact your business and the broader community
  • What compassionate companies are doing to resolve these challenges and measure their impact
  • Data on how doing good is good for business
