July 2012 Best Practice Network Webinar, presented by VolunteerMatch

Session Description:
Social media has emerged as an ideal platform for sharing a company's corporate responsibility story with its stakeholders. It's authentic. It's continuous. It's targeted. It's interactive. But as opportunities to inform, engage and activate stakeholders continue to grow with the changing technology, small businesses in particular can face challenges in adapting. What tools are worth the investment of time? How can compelling CSR content be developed and shared most efficiently, without sacrificing engagement?

Georgetown University's Center for Social Impact Communication (CSIC) recently conducted research on how small businesses are thinking about CSR, social media, and the intersection of the two. Join Julie Dixon, deputy director of CSIC, for an interactive discussion on trends and best practices, as well as recommendations on how smaller organizations can share their compelling stories of community involvement and employee volunteerism in ways that meet their unique limitations on resources, staff and time.
