Breakthrough Moments for A Better World Presents: A Fireside Chat with Erin Reilly
More than just volunteering and writing grants, corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a key factor in attracting and retaining talent and is quickly becoming more attractive to investors. In fact, the majority of U.S. companies now include CSR in their business models, with “an estimated 90% of companies on the S&P 500 index publishing a CSR report in 2019, compared to just 20% in 2011,” according to Harvard Business School findings. More companies are treating CSR as a “must-have” in their business strategy instead of a “nice-to-have, but why now?
Please join us for a fireside chat with Erin Reilly, Chief Social Impact Officer at Twilio. Over the course of her 20+ year career, Erin has driven social and environmental change while working at Google, Yahoo!, and Nike, and was named one of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Technology by the National Diversity Council, and one of the Top 100 Women in Technology by Technology Magazine. Erin will share with us her insights into how CSR has changed over the last two decades, the pros and cons of having a very vocal CEO, and how Twilio has successfully integrated CSR into its business model.
