Diversity & Inclusion, Employee Wellness & Engagement, Increased Community Impact! Two Days Away From Thinking Inside Out.

Oct 31, 2017 4:40 PM ET

October 31, 2017 /3BL Media/ - Join Canadian and International peers in Toronto, Canada at Inside Out: A Transformative Approach to Community Investment. Inside Out is a future-looking conference designed to advance the practice of how companies invest in community.

Diversity and inclusion, employee wellness and employee engagement are increasingly recognized as business priorities. Companies create business value when they address these strategically and effectively. Community investment is becoming recognized as a tool to address these important issues. 

Inside Out is designed for practitioners seeking to engage with colleagues, sharing real-world examples of how companies are beginning to position community investment as an effective approach to creating value by prioritizing diversity, inclusion and employee wellness, and to deepen employee engagement.

"Inside Out has been designed for companies seeking to impact communities. We will explore how looking inside uncovers a tremendous resource able to impact community in meaningful ways," says Stephanie Robertson, CEO & Founder of SiMPACT Strategy Group and Facilitator of London Benchmarking Group (LBG) Canada. "Leveraging employees in a meaningful and strategic way will address business priorities that include enriching corporate culture through diversity, increasing employee wellness and employee engagement. This approach then encourages companies to look outside the organization, for opportunities to have greater community impact. In this way, community investment can create tangible and significant ROI."

The full agenda for Inside Out has been released. The distinguished panel of speakers include representatives from: Deloitte Canada, Egale Human Rights Trust, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Microsoft, IMPACT2030, The Centre for Social Innovation and many more!
