Burbank, CA: Causecast, the leading volunteer and giving solutions provider for innovative companies, is expanding its popular annual +IMPACT Conference to leaders in the HR, CSR, employee giving and volunteering, talent diversity and social impact professions. The learning event on December 5th and 6th, 2016 in San Francisco, California will bring together 100 industry professionals with inspirational keynote speakers, powerful breakout workshops and expert best practice sharing and networking. Attendees will build upon each other’s knowledge to grow their skills and overcome current business challenges.
In keeping with the company’s commitment to helping companies create more impact year-round, and in support of #GivingTuesday Causecast is extending special discounted conference rates through November 29. Using the discount code “givingtuesday” attendees will get $50 off the regular ticket price. Tickets can be purchased here and prices go up November 30. Limited tickets are available.
+IMPACT Conference was previously an exclusive event for its customers and close partners and is being expanded this year to increase the possibilities for social impact through collaboration.
“The time is right for us to increase our commitment to coming together in service to our world, to innovating together, and to engaging as communities of shared purpose in acts of compassion and kindness towards our fellows,” said Ryan Scott, CEO and Founder of Causecast.
Corporate giving and volunteering professionals face a wide range of challenges and practitioners have historically struggled to measure the real-world impact of their efforts.
“At Causecast, not only do we work with these professionals every day, our team members come from the world of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and employee giving and volunteering themselves. We also take the opportunity to test new strategies and practices daily within our own Causecast team giving and volunteering programs,” says Scott. “We saw this great opportunity to support CSR professionals through the +IMPACT Conference — giving them the skills they need to make a lasting difference and helping them develop new professional relationships so that they can benefit from a network of ongoing support.”
The +IMPACT Conference illuminates critical issues affecting our local and global landscapes and inspires with stories of cutting-edge trends in the social impact space. The conference also provides the opportunity to exchange practical ideas that enhance employee communication and activation, offers strategies for securing senior leadership buy-in and budgetary support, and shares new insights around using data and metrics to bolster and demonstrate impact.
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn and grow from CSR experts who are at the cutting edge of social impact and believe in collaborating for good. Keynote speakers include:
-Matt Bauer, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Sparrow Mobile, the one-for-one mobile technology company, and one of the founding corporate members who answered President Obama’s Call to Action to join the White House Corporate Partnership for Refugees
-Nzinga Blake, Creative Content Director at Entertainment ForGood, American/Sierra Leonean actress and filmmaker, and creator of the “End Ebola Now” and viral #ShakeEbolaOff campaigns
-Pravir Malik, Founder and Fractal Architect with Deep Order Technologies, long-time organizational design expert and changemaker, who’s developing a new model that brings together the sciences of mathematics and mindfulness to transform the way organizations see and listen their way to social impact
Studies show that employee engagement derived from social impact improves meaning and connection at work. Social good efforts are not only beneficial for talent attraction and retention, they’re intimately tied to productivity and the business bottom line. Based on CECP’s Giving in Numbers: 2016 Edition, companies that increased total giving between 2013 and 2015 by at least 10% saw higher median growth rates in terms of revenue and pre-tax profit. CSR programs are increasingly recognized as core to business strategy for companies seeking to build authentic brands as a force for good in the world, and to cultivating stories that inspire and engage other companies to do the same.
The +IMPACT Conference is geared towards leveraging the power of community and collaboration to build new skills and develop enhanced programming that achieves unprecedented impact for the causes and communities our companies and people are most passionate about.
