CSRHub CEO and Co-founder Bahar Gidwani will be speaking at CR Magazine’s COMMIT!Forum, Good Business Makes the Difference, October 2-3, 2012 in New York, NY. As COMMIT!Forum’s website states, “It’s called the COMMIT!Forum because it calls on individuals and organizations to make commitments that change the world.” Joining Bahar’s conference panel, Assuring Sustainability, will be executives from Intel, UPS and the Global Reporting Initiative.
You can join world leaders in corporate responsibility and “walk into MissionPossible Case Studies, Game Changing Innovation Lightening Rounds and Ask-the-Expert Discussions ready to dive into the issues at hand.”
Bahar will be moderating one of the Ask-the-Expert discussions, Assuring Sustainability: When & How to Undergo Third Party Validation…and When Not To.
Assurance can improve trust, but at what cost? Is it right for your firm right now, or should you explore other options? Hear from seasoned practitioners and experts who've weighed the options for themselves and come to different conclusions. In engaging session our panelists will share their perspectives and provide you with a roadmap for making your own decisions.
- Michael Jacobson, Director, Corporate Responsibility Office, Intel
- Steve Leffin, Director, Global Sustainability, UPS
- Marjella Alma, External Relations Manager, Global Reporting Initiative
