How are businesses partnering with nonprofit organizations today? How are corporate needs changing and evolving?
In a special series, Co.act Detroit invites cross-sector professionals to discuss the importance and evolving role corporations have within the communities they operate and serve. As top C.E.O.s are beginning to redefine the role of business in society, there are increasing opportunities for non-profit and community organizations to develop innovative partnerships with for-profit businesses of all sizes.
Join us for coffee and conversation in the first of a quarterly Corporate Social Responsibility series to hear from corporate philanthropy experts, share local and national best practices for partnership, exchange ideas and learnings.
