(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) Chestnut Hill, MA - February 14, 2012 -The Boston College International Corporate Citizenship Conference gives practitioners an opportunity to network and share innovative thinking on issues that affect business and society. It convenes leaders from a variety of industries who are all working to help their companies become better corporate citizens in a way that aligns with business strategy. 

You don’t have to take our word for it. At the 2011 conference in Minneapolis, leading corporate citizenship professionals from a number of top companies were captured on video offering their thoughts on the value of attending the conference. Here is a sample of their comments:   “BC is unique in terms of its ability to convene some really cutting edge companies and some very thoughtful practitioners in this space.” Christopher Lloyd, Verizon   “You learn some really new and innovative things. It is where I get my inspiration.” Joanna de’Shay, Arizona Public Service   “Boston College is just a fabulous partner of ours. They are a leadership organization in this space.” Ellen Goldberg Luger, General Mills    “You come in here and you learn from people in a variety of industries and we’re all trying to do the same thing for our companies – to become better corporate citizens.” Craig Keller, Allstate   “I’m always finding new examples of something I can do better.” Dave Stangis, Campbell Soup Company   As one attendee observed, the issues facing business and corporate citizenship professionals will not be solved by one company alone. More than 600 professionals will come together in Phoenix, March 25-27, at the 2012 International Corporate Citizenship Conference to explore solutions through this year’s theme of Corporate Citizenship: Managing Many Environments.
