Join us as ACCP & I O Sustainability explore the business value of CSR at this meeting hosted by Philanthropy Ohio.

In this meeting, hosted by Philanthropy Ohio, ACCP (Association of Corporate Contributions Professionals) and I/O Sustainability will deliver a deep-dive workshop that will build your understanding of how a strategic corporate responsibility plan can influence your company’s success.
