Corporate Citizenship Affinity Group: Leadership Academy for Corporate Citizenship Professionals


The Corporate Citizenship Leadership Academy is an intensive five-month certificate program for developing leaders with strategic responsibilities within the corporate citizenship spectrum—from community involvement to diversity/inclusion to supply chain to Environmental Health and Safety (EHS). The program is a comprehensive blend of on-campus, instructor-led classes and off-campus, facilitated distance learning.

Alumni of this program stay connected to each other through digital channels and an annual reunion at the International Corporate Citizenship Conference. Learn more about enrolling in the Leadership Academy for Corporate Citizenship Professionals.
