Movers, Shakers & Impact Makers: SDG Action, CSR Jobs, Best Places to Work, and More


The member community convened by Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship is one of a kind. The 500+ companies we serve each year around the globe are leaders in environmental, social, and governance action, and the thousands of individuals who make up this network are some of the best in the field!

Here is how our members have been working to build better business and a better world:

Spotlight on You

We join Amy Wendel, global head of corporate social responsibility at LogMeIn, in celebrating the 20 employees who participated in the company’s first ever Mission Possible Global Service Trip. “This trip provided needed hands-on work for projects that make a wanted and needed lasting impact, for example, repairs to a Preschool Nutrition Center in Peña Blanca,” she said.

Evan Harvey, director of corporate responsibility for Nasdaq, published an article, SDG Awareness and Action - A Report From the Global Exchange Community, which examines the level of SDG awareness, action, and efficacy within the global exchange community. “We found that awareness and valuation of the SDGs is nearly universal, yet actionable progress is not being measured,” he said.

Congratulations to Hedieh Fakhriyazdi, director of social responsibility and Weil Foundation at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, who is serving as Co-Chair for this year’s United Way of New York City Power of Women Luncheon Host Committee
