Corporate Social Impact Strategies (CSIS) refers to investment strategies and approaches that corporations use to build and invest in sustainable value creating models that generate social, environmental as well as strategic return. The most effective corporate social impact strategies are the ones that help the corporations grow their business and increase profitability, by attracting and retaining the right people, adopting relevant innovations and growing into new market segments.

This workshop is suitable for people beginning to implement a corporate social investment strategy as well as those who are looking to better understand how to formulate one. The workshop will provide a framework, draw on best practice examples, and equip participants with practical takeaways to start collaborating with VPOs to scale social impact.
