May 22, 2013

The Business in the Community Ireland, Business Impact Map will be officially launched on Wednesday 22nd of May.

Ireland’s only interactive online map showcases the scale and variety of the support businesses provide to communities across Ireland. The Business Impact Map highlights the initiatives that add significant value to Irish society but often go un-recognised.

The data behind the map provides a robust platform to discuss the role of business and its impacts on significant social issues. So this year, the launch event will also comprise a symposium that brings together key stakeholders from business, community and government to identify opportunities for increasing social value through collaboration on three specific and strategic themes: Education, Employment and Health.

Breakfast Launch: 9.00 am to 10.10 am
Symposium: 10.30am – 1pm
