2017 Conference

………      In November 2017, Canadian and international peers came together in Toronto, Canada, ….. …….for Inside Out: A Transformative Approach to Community Investment, a conference …….designed to advance the practice of how companies invest in community.

LBG Canada and Realized Worth co-presented this highly interactive event which ran over the course of two days and focused on how the practice of community investment can transform organizational culture, employee experience, and community impact.

Participants of Inside Out: A Transformative Approach to Community Investment  engaged with colleagues sharing real-world examples of how companies are beginning to position community investment as an effective means to address critical business priorities that include diversity, inclusion and wellness, and to deepen employee engagement.

The ideas within A Transformative Approach presented a new and effective model for companies, communities and employees seeking to achieve growth, scale, and impact in community investment efforts. As a result, Inside Out offered participants a significant advancement beyond what is thought of as current best practice in community investment program design.

The event was co-hosted by Chris Jarvis and Stephanie Robertson. Speakers included: LoyaltyOne, TD Bank Group, Egale Canada, The Boeing Company, MaRS, TheBC.lab, IBM Canada, Deloitte Canada and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
