Crafting Business Strategies to Respond to Georgians’ Urgent Needs
RECAP: BUSINESS STRATEGIES & GA’S NEEDS
On October 7, Frank Fernandez, CEO, Community Foundation of Greater Atlanta and Natalye Paquin, CEO, Points of Light, discussed crafting business strategies to respond to Georgians’ urgent needs.
Some top attendee takeaways included mapping business assets to align to an urgent need area, and volunteerism’s evolution to more socially distanced and skills-based sharing. Frank encouraged leaders to grapple with racial inequity discussions as a separate (and more personal) challenge than the pandemic/recession crisis. Natalye counseled leaders that their people are insisting on corporate generosity and to commit to a “better normal.”
