Building Social Impact into Your Company’s DNA

August 24, 2022 at 11:00 AM PDT / 2:00 PM EDT


Given that 64% of millennials won’t take a job if the company doesn’t have a strong sense of corporate social responsibility, more and more companies are realizing the importance of building purpose into their organization. But where do you start?

In this special webinar, Guusto’s Head of People Noah Warder will be joined by Tara Maritzer, Advisor of Donor Relations and Corporate Development, and Anna Zisa, Manager - Monitoring, evaluation, research and learning at the One Drop Foundation – Guusto’s long-standing social impact partners. 

Together, they’ll discuss One Drop’s work providing access to safe drinking water around the world, and some of the strategies they’ve used in partnering with various organizations to achieve this goal. One Drop will also be sharing findings from their Impact Report, which details some of the inspiring projects they’ve undertaken in the past year.
