5th Annual Impact Forum a Success! NetworkPeninsula welcomed 66 nonprofit, business, and community leaders on December 1 for a presentation and discussion on Employee Engagement and Social Impact, presented by Kim Young from America’s Charities. Special thanks to our Sponsors: Middle Peninsula Insurance, Baker’s Crust, Mellette PC, Chesapeake Investment Group, and WJCC Community Action Agency; and many thanks to our moderator, Terry Shannon from the Executive Partners Program and William & Mary Mason School of Business.
NetworkPeninsula’s Annual Impact Forums bring together nonprofit leaders, community leaders, and senior-level decision makers from the public and private sectors to discuss emerging issues in the region. Presentations and round-table discussions serve to identify the impact of these issues in our work and in the community at large. Previous topics have included “The Changing Face of Corporate Philanthropy,” “The Overhead Myth,” “Generational Dynamics in the Nonprofit, Public, and Private Sectors,” and “Intentional Philanthropy.”
The topic for our 5th Annual Impact Forum is “Employee Engagement and Social Impact.” Our Keynote Speaker will be Kimberly Young, Vice President of America’s Charities, a national nonprofit that works to inspire employers and individuals to reach their philanthropic goals and support the charities of their choice. Ms. Young will discuss the results and impact of her organization’s most recent report, “The New Corporate DNA: Where Employee Engagement and Social Impact Converge.“ She will provide a better understanding of current and changing employee engagement methods for millennials and for all employees, including work days, matching gifts, crowdfunding, and social media. Kim will provide tools for small to medium-sized companies to initiate and encourage various employee engagement strategies. Ms. Young will also offer guidance for nonprofit leaders on how they can better engage with companies looking to improve their employee involvement. Following the Keynote, round table discussions among nonprofit, business, and community leaders will serve to dive deeper into how to effectively incorporate these concepts.
This year’s Forum will be moderated by Terry Shannon, Executive Director of the Executive Partners Program, Raymond A. Mason School of Business, William & Mary.
In 2015, our Forum welcomed more than 70 participants representing nonprofits, businesses, higher educational institutions, civic and faith-based groups, and government leaders. This year, with the scope of this topic and the internationally-known reputation of our speaker and America’s Charities, we anticipate a much larger audience from across the Peninsula.
