Building Responsibility into Your Business for SMEs

Business & Professional

AGORA Presents...a panel discussion on CSR strategy for SMEs with the Drive Forward Foundation!

πŸ’₯ You’ve been invited to join us for β€˜AGORA Presents’ - a series of pop-up events, each focused on specific topics dedicated to helping budding entrepreneurs on their journey! πŸ”₯

Would you like your business to be able to help young people in London?

Would your employees like to support their local community and use their skills to make a positive, tangible difference?

Are you lacking in the resources to develop a corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy?

Do you want to improve your attraction and retention of diverse talent?

Join us for an evening with The Drive Forward Foundation, where they will discuss how they can work with you to reach more diverse candidates as well as provide opportunities to improve the work readiness of their clients, and thereby achieve two of the key pillars of any CSR strategy: community engagement and an inclusive workplace.

This is followed by a panel discussion, featuring...

  • Maggie Collier - Former CEO @ Flamingo
  • Avelon Thompson - Future Talent, Diversity and Inclusion Manager @ MediaCom
  • Richard Simanovics - Drive Forward Ambassador & Web Development Assistant @ Module Media

...where we'll cover topics including how to develop a CSR strategy, the relationship between CSR and diversity and inclusion, and why small businesses are well suited to supporting their local community.

Following that, we’ll have a short Q&A session as well as a networking session afterwards to help you meet other entrepreneurs on the same journey, and to engage with our guests (over drinks πŸ₯‚πŸ» ) to discuss issues more specific to you!
