Corporate Global Citizenship
Planning Events in an Evolving World
Global citizenship is an action-based response to the challenges of our new world. It is a perspective that helps us understand the role we each play in the lives of others and the health of our planet.* Live Events can tell powerful stories, impact lives, build bridges and create change. They can also send harmful messages, build barriers and create disharmony.
As the planner, you are not only responsible for your guest’s experience and safety but the impact your events have on them, the message your brand is sending and the choices you make for your community and environment. Taking all these factors into consideration during the planning process is vital to being a good corporate citizen. From protecting your guest’s privacy to your inclusivity code of conduct to the food you serve, to your sustainability plan and to the way you incorporate giving, this course will help you examine your current model and offer tools and strategies you can use to further your path toward being a good corporate citizen. A certificate will be issued upon completion.
