We hear this often, “I want to give back to my community – but I don’t know where to start.” The way to start giving back is to redefine the idea of “giving back.” The phrase implies that, as businesspeople and as companies, we should take first and then give back later. As business leaders, are we here just to meet the needs of a ‘market’ or are we here to serve the needs of our community, too?
Together, let’s redefine what it means for each of us to connect with a cause that matters most to us by first understanding our unique values, skills, and causes that resonate with us. This month, Bridget Wilkinson will lead us through ways to redefine “giving back” to our community and provide tips to help you connect with a cause that truly “fills your bucket” through your time, talents and treasures!
