Last week, we had the pleasure of hosting an afternoon filled with workshops and fireside chats alongside the Dallas Corporate Citizenship Network. Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility professionals gathered at Leeward Renewable Energy’s offices to dive into topics such as employee engagement, impactful communication, and driving strategy and progress with lean teams.
The event included a conversation with Emily Clark, Director of Corporate Communications and Experience at Nutrabolt, and our Client Engagement Manager, Sofía Sada Cazarin, who discussed making social impact a strategic priority, effective training and education partnerships, and the 3 C’s of employee engagement: culture, career catalyst (how initiatives contribute to individual career growth), and citizenship (aligning actions with employee values).
Our Head of Communication Strategy, Janna Irons, then led a workshop exploring practical solutions for engaging internal stakeholders. And finally, Kristine (Young) Richmond, Senior Director of ESG & Sustainability Impact at WM, joined our CEO, Jonathan Hanwit, for an insightful conversation about driving strategy and progress within small teams, ideas for securing leadership buy-in, and the importance of demonstrating how initiatives can build value, create efficiencies, and enhance effectiveness.
Here are some of the highlights:
