Entrepreneur's Circle: Social Impact and CSR with Milicent Johnson

Join us for our casual and conversational Entrepreneur's Circle at The Hivery!

Milicent Johnson

This month, join us for a special conversation about social impact. Milicent Johnson, Manager, SF Gives at Tipping Point Community, will walk us through what it means to build an effective CSR strategy for companies of at all stages and sizes. 

Whether you are looking to found a company that has a positive social impact, your company is just starting to build a CSR strategy, or you’re interested in scaling an existing program, this circle is for you. During this interactive workshop, you will discuss the diverse ways in which companies in the Bay Area are doing CSR as well as engage in conversations about the challenges, successes, and learnings that face companies that want to create or improve a CSR program. You will leave this event with a deeper understanding of how to do impactful CSR, regardless of the age or stage of your company’s program. 

This is a recurring monthly program at The Hivery, where you will find the answers to your questions, including tips, connections, and resources are often available right in the community. This is another way to make sure you're not going at the business of building a business on your own! But rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community. 

It's a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion at The Hivery from 12:30-1:45 pm. Free for members. $30 for non-members.

All are welcome!

Seats are limited so please kindly register online before this program.
