Wednesday, April 22, 2015 - 2:05pm

With an agenda packed from dawn to dusk, day two of the 2015 International Corporate Citizenship Conference was full of learning and networking—we even managed to network while getting some exercise! Highlights included an in-depth one-on-one with Dell Chairman and CEO Michael Dell, an on-site volunteer project benefiting Austin middle-schoolers, and more than 15 other sessions tackling subjects ranging from engaging veterans to navigating the reporting landscape.

Morning collaboration and the future and promise of technology

To start the day on the right foot, the Center for Corporate Citizenship created a unique networking event for the early risers and especially intrepid—a Corporate “Fitizens” Networking Walk. Participants had the chance to take in the sights and sounds of the city while getting to know their peers and Center staff.

The walk was not the only activity that served a dual purpose. For many, the morning breakfast was also an opportunity to explore shared challenges, as more than 100 attendees gathered with their peers for moderated solution sessions, discussing issues like environmental sustainability and managing strategic partnerships.

Following breakfast, Katherine V. Smith, executive director of the Center for Corporate Citizenship, welcomed the assembled attendees to the Conference, and reminded them of their place in creating the future of corporate citizenship.

“We live in a different world than we did 30 years ago, or even one year ago—but the challenge before us remains constant:  To make it a better world,” said Smith.
