Corporate Social Responsibility and the Arts
Wednesday, October 29, 2014 - 3:00pm - 04:00pm
How do corporations support and view arts and culture as strategies to help achieve corporate social responsibility goals? This webinar shares findings from Animating Democracy’s latest research detailed in its forthcoming Corporate Social Responsibility and the Arts report. Researcher Lynn Stern will share how corporations are supporting arts and culture to enhance investments in community and economic development, health, and other priority issue areas; reinforce values and brand identity; and support internal company goals related to diversity, community involvement, and workforce development. Emma Leggat, head of Corporate Social Responsibility at StubHub, will tell the company’s story of Rising Stars, its signature program expanding access and opportunity for vulnerable youth. Animating Democracy staff will share a preview of other in-progress research related to funding for arts and social change.
