On Tuesday, April 21, the final day of the 2015 International Corporate Citizenship Conference, the learning continued with more breakout sessions throughout the day.

She then asked the three panelists—Crystal Barnes, vice president of corporate social responsibility at The Nielsen Company; Daniel Duty, vice president of global affairs at Target Corporation; and Jenny Robertson, director of sustainability at AT&T Inc.—how they use corporate citizenship throughout the value chain in a way that has impact on their companies.
