Webcasts

ACCP welcomes Janelle St. Omer, Regional VP at Benevity and Alexis King Wilson, Senior Manager of Social Impact at Spotify to present an educational webcast. This free webcast is open to both members and nonmembers, will be available with closed captioning and a follow up transcript, and will be recorded.

A recent study from Benevity found 80% of U.S. employees believe addressing racial injustice and equity is a central responsibility of the CEO and management, yet more than a quarter say company leadership has done little to nothing to actively address these issues in the past year, highlighting a gap between statement and action.

This data reveals the importance to employees of authentic corporate action on diversity, inclusion, equity and belonging. It also shows why continuing to power movements and take massive grassroots action against ongoing racial injustice and social discrimination is more important now than ever. But, how do brands continue to show support, keep these movements going and truly shift their cultures?

Join Spotify and Benevity as they discuss what they, along with other purpose-driven companies, have been able to achieve this past year in the fight against inequality. Learn how these actions compare to the overall employee awareness of companies’ public commitments to address racial justice and equity. And, what the impact is when companies address social issues (or don’t) in the workplace.

They’ll discuss what this all means for brands going forward and how they can keep their employee conversations ongoing to create long-lasting cultural change.

You’ll discover:

  • Insights and proven ways to power movements and create an ongoing space for learning and action.
  • Strategies to share and track engagement in company-wide movements and raise visibility and support for your diversity, equity and inclusion programs.
  • Learn about some tools that are available to help your company foster inclusive spaces to hold necessary conversations about racial equity.

International disaster and crisis grantmaking grows more relevant with each passing month. The onslaught of wildfires, hurricanes, floods, conflicts, and of course the COVID-19 pandemic have proven corporate philanthropic giving more important than ever before. And the emergencies do not seem to be abating: The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Report released in August this year predicts that extreme weather events will only grow more frequent.

The impacts of climate change and other crises reach across borders to harm communities around the world. This webinar will introduce new insights to guide corporate grantmakers as they craft an international philanthropic response to disasters and crises both within and outside the United States.

The webcast will explore the following topics:

  • Identifying communities of interest that align with your global disaster and crisis grantmaking strategy
  • Engaging your employees in your company’s disaster and crisis grantmaking
  • Building an effective grantmaking strategy before disasters strike
  • The importance of charity community resilience, and how to design effective strategies for resilience in the face of disasters and crises.
