Which corporate citizenship issues are most important and is your company in the best position to address them?  Answering this question can help you identify the boundaries of your environmental, social, and governance (ESG) report, create a corporate citizenship strategy, and identify business risks and opportunities.  

Join us for this interactive workshop with Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship as we review a process for identifying priority ESG issues, discuss how to create a materiality matrix, and understand how it can drive strategic decisions that engage internal and community stakeholders.
