2024 Programs

The increasing polarization within our society presents unique challenges for purpose-driven companies and social impact practitioners. Yet, purpose has never been more important. Employees, customers, and investors continue to make critical decisions based on a company’s CSR, ESG, and DEI commitments and practices. Join us for Advancing Purpose Amidst Polarization: An ACCP Summit designed for corporate social impact practitioners navigating today’s complex landscape. Topics include communications strategies, the state of workforce development programs, the evolving ESG regulatory environment, the impact of joint CSR/DEI initiatives in the wake of the SCOTUS decision on Affirmative Action, and more. While some of these topics apply globally, this Summit will have a US-centric lens to the conversation. 

The Forum is a comprehensive educational program for professionals with one to three years of experience in the corporate social responsibility field to receive immersive, hands-on education within a small cohort. Not only will you develop useful skills and knowledge, the network and connections fostered during the Forum will help propel your career. In 2024, Forum will be an in-person program across 3 full-days, and will include small group activities, breakout discussions, conversations with CSR leaders, and more.

Forum provides a unique opportunity where attendees can delve into the full spectrum of corporate social impact work, while also forming a career-long peer cohort for collaboration and learning. All attendees will receive a certificate of participation upon completion of the program.

The corporate social impact landscape is rapidly changing. Expectations are higher. Roles, strategies, and terminology are evolving. Purpose is now interconnected with all parts of the business. Join us for the 2024 ACCP Annual Conference, where you can reconnect with peers, build new relationships, and learn how to transform shifting trends into practical solutions. Collectively, we will forge a path forward and help our companies be changemakers in this critical time.
