Hosted by Fenton’s Susan McPherson, award-nominated #CSRchats are bi-weekly Twitter conversations centered around important topics in corporate responsibility. Last year, hundreds of participants joined in as Susan moderated discussions on issues such as corporate philanthropy, crisis management and transparency, disaster relief, water sourcing, and environmental reporting. Dozens of special guests shared insights, including Microsoft’s Citizenship Team, reporting guru Elaine Cohen, the founders of #GivingTuesday, the Intel and Cisco CSR teams, and the Director of the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy.

We’re looking forward to another year of engaging, provocative #CSRchats and are excited to share with you the tentative 2013 schedule! Chats take place every other Wednesday on Twitter at 3:00pm ET; anyone and everyone is welcome to participate.
