LEADING TOGETHER SCHEDULE SUNDAY, APRIL 26 CONCURRENT SESSIONS 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm Yerba Buena Salon 3/4 Lower B2 Level The Value of Corporate Social Investments: Defining, Measuring and Reporting Part 2 Corporate philanthropy is experiencing stakeholder demand for improved measurement and evaluation, and subsequently data-driven decision-making. This two-part, consecutive session will address two important areas of measurement for corporate philanthropy: social impact of investments, and return on investment (ROI) to the corporation. In Part Two of the series we will review the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy (CECP) framework on ROI which demonstrates benefit to employee recruitment and retention, revenue and bottom line, and brand and reputation. Corporate philanthropy leaders will share examples of how they are defining and measuring constructs like employee engagement and reputation.

CONCURRENT SESSIONS 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm Yerba Buena Salon 10/11 Lower B2 Level Public –Private Partnerships Series: The Connections between Broadband, Equity, and Economics Access to broadband Internet is no longer a luxury - it is a necessity. The U.S. Department of Commerce has been leading the Obama Administration’s effort to make broadband everywhere, for everyone, a reality. Staff from the National Telecommunications and Technology Information Administration will brief attendees on the $4.7 billion Broadband Technology Opportunities Program and the new Broadband USA initiative, with key West Coast funder partners like California Emerging Technologies Fund (CETF). CETF has raised levels of broadband adoption by 200,000 households among the state’s most disadvantaged populations - rural, immigrant, Hispanic, and elderly - by working with grassroots nonprofit organizations and media partners. Along the way they have created more than 2,700 jobs in the technology industry and empowered diverse new voices. CONCURRENT SESSIONS 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm Yerba Buena Salon 12/13 Lower B2 Level What’s Faith & Philanthropy Got to Do with Justice? The movie Selma reminds us that the church was not agnostic when it came to addressing issues of societies injustices. Talent and treasure supported much on the ground work in the past--Rev. Martin Luther King Jr, King, Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth & Mahalia Jackson were some of the most notable faith leaders in the struggle. Many thought the church has fallen asleep or has ignored the least of us--but Pope Francis and other religious leaders of today are very much awake and willing to call out injustice as they see it. Is there a spiritual revival in faith activism on the horizon? LEARNING LAB 4:30 pm – 4:50 pm Council Central Maximizing the Impact and Efficiency of Scholarship Programs Private scholarships are key to filling the gap for students pursuing their education goals.
