Have you ever wondered how Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) works in Ireland today and what big tech companies are doing? Are you interested in the role of community projects, or how the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are changing the face of CSR? Tech for Good Dublin has gathered together experts in the field to share their own thoughts (good and bad), and their visions for the future of what CSR could potentially become.
Join us on 1st November in AIB Grafton Street for this free event which promises to be both fun and fascinating.
What you will get:
Free tea and coffee and donuts on arrival. 3 very interesting short talks. A discussion on the topic of ‘What could Corporate Responsibility achieve in the future?’ Tech for Good Dublin badges for the first 3 questions asked.
