Career Advancement in Corporate Citizenship


How is career development different for CSR? New research suggests that corporate citizenship professionals who are strong communicators and networkers are more likely to be successful in their careers. The Profile of the Professionals study examines job satisfaction, professional development, motivations, and compensation of corporate citizenship professionals. Since it was first released in 1993, the Center has regularly heard from our members that the report is valued for the insights it provides into how professionals have successfully navigated into and through the field of corporate citizenship.

Recognizing that the business landscape—including corporate citizenship—is changing on a near daily-basis, now is a particularly opportune for those in the CSR space to talk with one another—to troubleshoot, share their learnings, and benefit from the expertise and perspectives of those who make up our dynamic member community. 

This Member Meetup will include an open-forum discussion between all attendees, as well as small group sessions facilitated by your peers. Those who have been profiled in the Profile of the Professionals 2020 have agreed to help facilitate breakout sessions by leading what are sure to be candid and insightful member-to-member conversations.

No matter what stage you are at in your corporate citizenship journey, please join us for one or both of our upcoming Member Meetups.
