Upcoming Events

Transformative Strategies: Looking into the Future of Stakeholder Engagement

Paris

 

Date and Time

Thursday December 14, 2017
9:00 am-10:30 am CET


Location

Paris


Topics

#Stakeholder Engagement, #Strategy and Integration, #Sustainability Management


Join BSR for a networking discussion event on trends in stakeholder engagement.

Today, companies are facing an increasingly uncertain external environment where the media, government, civil society, and the general public are expressing concern about business ethics, values, and strategic direction. The rise of hyper-transparency and social activism necessitates stakeholder engagement approaches that are new, dynamic, responsive, and interactive. 

BSR will share insights and innovative corporate practices on this topic and will explore the following issues:

  • How the rise of stakeholder activism, social media, and hyper-transparency are shaping how companies interact with stakeholders
  • How companies are successfully moving to deeper and more inclusive engagement, and what innovative stakeholder engagement methods have worked
  • What new tools help companies capture stakeholder perspectives and emerging trends

Who should attend this event: corporate responsibility/sustainable development, government/public affairs, marketing, finance, and ethics and compliance practitioners. You are invited to share this invitation with colleagues. 

Speakers

  • Charlotte Bancilhon, Associate Director, BSR
  • Alison Taylor, Senior Advisor, BSR
