Aug 24, 2017 10:30 AM ET

WASHINGTON, D.C., August 24, 2017 /3BL Media/ - The CEOs of BlackRock and State Street are requesting that companies disclose long-term strategies and demanding board oversight for environmental, social and governance topics (ESG). Some corporate professionals see this as a burden, while others turn these market developments into strategic advantage.

Join a half-day workshop on the morning of Oct.10 at MGM National Harbor, led by BrownFlynn, to explore the changing landscape for corporate responsibility and sustainability practitioners. The session is being held in conjunction with COMMIT!Forum, Oct. 11-12, the annual conference presented by the Corporate Responsibility Association and CR Magazine.

“We’re delighted to welcome BrownFlynn to COMMIT!Forum to provide context and share best practices around the communication of sustainability plans to long-term investors,” said CR Magazine Publisher Dave Armon. “Come early for the workshop and stay for COMMIT!Forum, where our theme is Brands Taking Stands.”

The workshop, “Integrated Management and Reporting: The Next Step in Corporate Commitment” will explore what’s driving the move to integrated thinking and ultimately, integrated reporting, the benefits of integrated management, and how long-term ESG factors typically make their way into conversations about corporate strategy, risk management, investor relations, and ultimately, integrated reporting.

Attendees will learn about tools both for assessing a company’s maturity and for initiating new and highly valuable conversations both internally and externally. BrownFlynn will provide real-world examples and facilitate exercises to help corporate practitioners to understand why and how to engage and communicate with the growing demands of long-term stakeholders.

Registration for the workshop, which is exclusively for corporate professionals, and COMMIT!Forum is available at
