Today, 600 CSR professionals traveled to Los Angeles to kick off the 2018 International Corporate Citizenship Conference—an event dedicated to helping CSR professionals strengthen the connections between resilience, responsibility, and results. 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.
Each year, the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship gathers CSR leaders from around the world for two and a half days of learning, sharing, and growing. This year, the Conference is hosted by Travelers, a company who has, for more than 160 years, helped individuals and organizations foster resilience, invest in responsibility, and deliver results.
Congratulations to the nine newest Corporate Citizenship Film Festival finalists!
Public voting for the 2018 Film Festival has closed and YOU have chosen this year's top nine submissions. Thank you to all the companies that entered. The Corporate Citizenship Film Festival—presented by Wells Fargo—is proud to honor excellence in corporate citizenship and recognize the great work being undertaken by companies across the CSR landscape, including impactful disaster relief programs, innovative STEM and financial literacy educational initiatives, community involvement campaigns, and partnerships designed to improve health and well-being.
Here at the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship, we're pleased to release our Profile of the Professionals 2018 study, a research project that examines the roles, responsibilities, development, and compensation of corporate social responsibility (CSR) professionals. Its findings—based on survey results from 932 corporate citizenship professionals—provide insight into how CSR professionals at all levels assess the skills they need to be effective in their roles and what they perceive as the greatest challenges they must overcome.

The interaction between a company’s bottom line, its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) efforts, and the way customers view both its product and its people is complex. Figuring out the right communications mix may be demanding at times. If you get it right, the rewards are more than worth the effort.
