Inside Out: A Transformative Approach to Community Investment

  • LoyaltyOne Headquarters, The Globe and Mail Center 351 King Street East 7th Floor Toronto, ON M5A 1L1 Canada (map)

Join Canadian and international peers in Toronto, Canada, at Inside Out: A Transformative Approach to Community Investmenta conference designed to advance the practice of how companies invest in community.

LBG Canada and Realized Worth will co-present this highly interactive event November 2nd and 3rd, 2017. This two-day event will be focused on how the practice of community investment can transform organizational culture, employee experience and community impact.

Participants in Inside Out: A Transformative Approach to Community Investment will engage with colleagues sharing real-world examples of how companies are beginning to position community investment as an effective means to address critical business priorities that include diversity, inclusion and wellness, and to deepen employee engagement.

The ideas within A Transformative Approach present a new and effective model for companies, communities and employees seeking to achieve growth, scale, and impact in community investment efforts. As a result, Inside Out will offer a significant advancement beyond what is thought of as current best practice in community investment program design.

Throughout the event, participants will be invited to ‘Look Within’ and to examine how involvement in the community nurtures qualities that influence individual leadership and business performance. Key questions will include: How can companies invest more effectively? What is the role for employees? Who and what transforms? Is transformation a possibility for everyone?

We will also be ‘Looking Out’ to better understand how the Transformative Approach leads to radically new understandings of what sustainable impact means for the communities in which we live and work. The coming trend is for companies to collaborate across sectors to address complex social and environmental issues. Now, we are presented a new and powerful opportunity to empower employees as agents of change and trigger social movements that achieve impact beyond the walls of our respective corporations.

Think Transformation and Impact. Join the LBG Canada network, Realized Worth, LoyaltyOne, SiMPACT Strategy Group, the RW Institute and global peers to engage Inside Out. Practitioners of community investment, employee brand and engagement, human resources, and project strategy all have a voice to lend to the dialogue on how companies can enable greater social good to be achieved in communities around the world.
