The final day of the 2016 International Corporate Citizenship Conference was rich with inspiration and ideas, as attendees solidified connections, learned from each other and from experts in the field, and were introduced to next year’s Conference sponsor—State Street—during the event’s closing session.
The first full day of the 2016 International Corporate Citizenship Conference was just that—full. Full of the insights and connections that will make future social, environmental, and economic progress possible. During four general sessions, 12 breakout panels, case studies, workshops, and numerous networking opportunities, CSR leaders from around the world discussed the programs that will address global problems—and their local impacts.
Today, more than 500 corporate citizenship professionals joined us in Atlanta with one purpose: to gather the knowledge and connections necessary to lead the fight against some of the most pressing global issues. The afternoon was filled with numerous networking opportunities and an illuminating dinner session—and was capped off by the annual Film Festival Award Ceremony—setting the stage for two more days of insights and connections.
Every year, the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship gathers CSR leaders from around the globe for our International Corporate Citizenship Conference. Drawing experts from our more than 400 Member companies, leading corporate citizenship and management thinkers, and organizations such as CDP and GRI, we create unique space—one that admits corporate citizenship practitioners only—for the free exchange of ideas.
“We should not only use the brains we have but all that we can borrow.”-Woodrow Wilson
As corporate citizenship professionals, you have a uniquely important job. You are required to create, operate, and communicate in ways to differentiate your company from its competitors, and often expected to work with them—as well as with many other partners—to help address some of the world’s most pressing challenges.
Issues like climate change, global poverty and hunger, and future workforce preparation cannot be addressed by one program or organization alone—no matter how innovative or dedicated. Tackling these problems, and many others, requires the collaborative effort of many.

Every year, the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship gathers experts from around the world for our International Corporate Citizenship Conference. This 2.5 day event is packed full of inspiring speakers, networking opportunities, and hands-on workshops that offer the insight and guidance to help you tackle environmental, social, and governance issues. While attendees find value in all of the activities, many find the most in-depth, actionable discussion to take place during our 26 breakout sessions. In these sessions, a panel of distinguished CSR leaders dives into a specific topic—offering real world examples of successes and challenges and fielding questions from the audience. Because the Conference admits corporate citizenship practitioners only, attendees engage in honest dialogue and free discussion.
Trillions of dollars are invested in sustainability. But trillions are not. What gives?
This year's International Corporate Citizenship Conference demonstrated that good progress has been made for the sustainability investment case, but also that much has not changed in the past decade. Michael Dell, CEO of recently de-listed Dell, described that going private to attract business investors with a longer-term mindset was a strategic, sustainable investment decision.
On Tuesday, April 21, the final day of the 2015 International Corporate Citizenship Conference, the learning continued with more breakout sessions throughout the day. Heads filled with new ideas and inspiration from the day before, conference attendees had the chance to attend two additional breakout sessions before heading back to put what they learned into action.
