Corporate Citizenships’ latest research on the state of Corporate Foundations shows some leading Foundations are acting as pioneers, often
as incubators for innovation, a voice for advocacy and a vehicle for social
transformation. Where previously the link with the Corporate brand was
made quite distinct, the link between a corporate and its Foundation is often
becoming much closer.
In this session we ask what is the purpose of a modern-day Corporate
Foundation? Will they continue to be convenors of multi-stakeholder
partnerships and safe spaces for collaboration? How can they influence the
systems through which they operate in order to create the widest societal
impact – social, environmental, economic and commercial?
Join us for a breakfast discussion where we will discuss the issues raised
in our research, the ambition for Foundations and the opportunities to drive
change for the better.
