Registration is now open for the 2012 Corporate Philanthropy Institute (CPI), NCG’s signature annual corporate event!
Designed to focus on the nuanced experience of a corporate grantmaker, the CPI is a day–long conference developed to focus on the most significant global and national trends impacting corporate philanthropy.
Corporate Social (R)evolution
Social Impact. Social Change. Social Innovation. People are working in new and different ways to solve the world’s most pressing problems: developing businesses with social missions, adopting entrepreneurial strategies to further their community agenda, and engaging entire companies in the work of addressing social problems. We are also seeing increasing numbers of individuals actively engaged in talking about, investigating, exploring, and being directly involved in creating change.
At this year’s CPI we’ll explore many of the new ideas and concepts in social innovation—from social entrepreneurship to shared value to B corporations. We’ll talk about the different ways they are interpreted and experienced, how corporate philanthropy and citizenship may adapt or change in response, and how we use these approaches and opportunities to build “best in class” programs.
Big Picture, Real Tactics, and a Look Ahead
The CPI will provide participants with both the big picture of social change and innovation efforts in the nonprofit, business and philanthropy spheres and practical conversations about promising and effective practices. We’ll discuss how social innovation can be used in what we do in our philanthropy and community involvement efforts. The CPI will close with an exciting discussion with some of the visionaries who are leveraging corporate philanthropy and social media to build social movements.
