Partnerships between corporations and community organizations have become central to effective corporate social responsibility (CSR). From June 7-9, the Canadian Business & Community Partnership Forum will bring together leaders in business and the charitable and nonprofit sector to discuss the intersection of social initiatives and corporate community involvement.

Presented by Imagine Canada and Volunteer Canada, the focus of the forum will be on building and maintaining sustainable partnerships, promoting best practices and discussing how to implement programs that promote and foster positive change and impact across Canada. The Forum will feature thought-leaders from across Canada, North America and internationally. I’ve been asked to participate and will be speaking about Return on Integrity – the subject of an article I wrote for Advertising Age last year.

The event program looks excellent and I recommend it for anyone in the corporate or non-profit sectors that’s involved in this aspect of CSR.
