Friday, December 14, 2018 - 8:30am to 10:00am
The Center City Power Friday is held on the 2nd Friday of the month.
Topic: Blending the Social and Economic Halves of Your Business
Your business can be an opportunity to integrate the social and economic halves of society in order to create value. Firms, no matter their size, can enact a corporate social strategy with the possibilities of addressing some of society's most pressing needs. When this integration is done well, it can lead to firms performing better in the marketplace.
