Impact Acceleration Group

The Impact Acceleration Group is an Impact Europe programme that gathers progressive corporate social investors (CSIs, i.e., corporate foundations, impact funds, CSR and Corporate Citizenship teams) to explore their role in accelerating the related corporate impact journey. This has been identified as a key opportunity in the corporate social investing ecosystem to accelerate positive change for people and planet at scale on top of their core mission to serve their end beneficiaries. The group dives into this topic during regular intimate meetups to innovate and share learning in that area. These meetups last 1h30 and are kicked off by an expert/ practitioner presentation followed by a peer discussion to share challenges, successes, and reflections.

The next meetup will take place on Wednesday 24 January 11:00 - 12:30. The first session focuses on "Implementing Cultural Shift through Employee Engagement Supported by Senior Management." Arnaud Mourot, VP Ashoka Changemaker Companies and Virginie Le Barbu, Global Director Sustainability at Lenovo will share their perspective on this topic followed by an interactive peer discussion.
