During these times, corporations are being asked by their board, employees, and society to be more socially responsible.

The Wharton Club of New York is delighted to host a panel discussion featuring seasoned CSR professionals in the financial services and legal fields as they discuss their career paths and the numerous ways to get involved in CSR initiatives. The panel will lend their insights, experiences and career tips for those looking to make a career transition and anyone with an interest in having a social impact while working in a corporate setting.
