Community Engagement in a Time of Crisis

Apr 23, 2020

VENUE: Webinar

TIME: 11:00am - 12:00 noon

In our second webinar of this series, ‘Community Engagement in a Time of Crisis’, taking place on Thursday, 23rd April from 11.00am – 12.00 noon, we will examine what is best practice in community engagement during the COVID-19 crisis.

Following on from our initial advice for member companies on 26th March, we will check in with two of our member companies to learn about their approach and experiences to date of community engagement in response to the crisis.

In addition, we will have a panel of guests from key NGOs who are addressing some of the most pressing needs, including funding, food poverty, the digital divide and social isolation. Our discussion will focus on how business can support these needs and we hope this will give attendees some practical ideas for your own community response.
