The theme of this year’s Summit was The Radically Engaged Business: Creating a Culture Energized Through Citizenship. The day included an excellent array of guest speakers who shared their own unique experiences and expertise. Edelman executives, including Richard Edelman, Carol Cone, Gary Grates and Bob Knott and CECP’s Margaret Coady moderated panels and lead discussions throughout the day.
The Summit was also sponsored by the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy (CECP). CECP is the only international forum of business CEOs and chairpersons focused exclusively on corporate philanthropy.
CECP’s mission is to lead the business community in raising the level and quality of corporate philanthropy, offering members essential resources, including a proprietary online benchmarking tool, networking programs, research, and opportunities for best-practice sharing.
