Corporate Social Responsibility meetup?

  • 1.  Corporate Social Responsibility meetup?

    Posted 20 days ago
    Hi Everyone,
    I manage Oracle NetSuite's global pro bono programs, and I am really excited to learn and connect/reconnect with everyone at NTC this year. Our Social Impact division is relatively equivalent to a corporate social responsibility (CSR) department at other companies.

    I'd love to meet up with fellow conference attendees working in CSR. Anyone else attending who fits that description? If so, reply to this thread and we'll take it from there...hopefully finding a time to meet and learn from each other.

    Hi Debra,

    I'd be interested in meeting up. I don't work in a CSR department, but I'm eager to learn more about CSR strategy and operations. My background is in strategy (with a digital emphasis) for nonprofits and government agencies, and that still represents about half of my work. But in the last 2 years, I've branched out and started working with commercial clients such as Salesforce and IBM on their brand community programs. CSR seems like a logical space to explore at the intersection of my interests and experience.

    Best,
    Brian

    Hi Debra,

    I'd be interested in meeting up as well. I work at Tides, a social impact investing and advising group based in San Francisco, and we're learning how companies across a wide spectrum (start-ups to industry leaders) are approaching social impact in their work. We also support a number of existing partners with their strategy and execution.

    Looking forward to hearing where everyone is coming from and what impact they're looking to have!

    Thanks,

    Eric

    Hey Debra,

    I am with an organization called Cause Inspired and we have been developing a market place for nonprofits and company/corporate sponsors to connect. I would love your input! We are looking to really change how organizations (nonprofits and companies) view their relationships and CSR departments.

    Hi Debra,

    I'm interested in connecting with this group. I serve as an Advisory Member to the Georgia Social Impact Collaborative (GSIC) and am interested in learning more about what is going on in the CSR/Impact Investment space around the country. I'm also speaking at NTC on Measuring ROI on Technology-Related Investments Wednesday at 10:30am PST.

    I'm already booked for lunch Wednesday but available the other days of the conference.

    Best,
    Sean Williams

    Yahoo - we have a group! Let's meet Thursday for lunch. I hope that works for most of us. I have a 1:15 hard stop, so hoping that gives us enough time. If not, we could always continue the discussion on Friday at lunch :-)

    In reading the map of the Exhibit hall (lunch location), it looks like an obvious location is just to the right of the main entrance, in front of booth 201. I'll also try to connect with all of you on the 19NTC app so it'll be easy to communicate. If we can't find a table together, I am assuming we can go somewhere in the convention center to find a spot to sit and eat.

    If anyone has better ideas...I'm open!

    FYI - I also added it to the self-organized events doc: 19NTC Community-Organized Events under Day 2 | Thursday, March 14th. If you are interested in joining the lunch, it would be helpful if you signed up to it on the Google doc, adding your name and email. That way I'll know how many to expect at lunch.
    Thanks!

    Debra

    We are at the main entrance now to the exhibit hall. We are sitting (2 of us now) at a table  furthest edge near main entrance, second table from the rear.
