Corporate Giving Webinar | How Equity, Economic Security, and Livable Wage Investments Impact Your Company’s Bottom Line
A strong economy supported by a secure workforce is important. Jobs that pay livable wages and provide good benefits afford workers the disposable income to increase economic security. More often than not, we lean on Corporations to advance the cause of the livable wage through their social responsibility and improve the well-being of American workers.
This program will discuss successful livable wage strategies used by corporations and provide ways to increase the value of jobs while strengthening the business. We will also cover the intersection of increasing wages and asset building: some of the reasons there's discussion and uptake among employers for living wages, various policy moves to increase the minimum wage to $15, and how funders can support growth in wages as well as broader asset/wealth building strategies.
The series is designed for staff involved with corporate foundations, giving programs, or advised funds at a community foundation; however, grantmakers of all types are invited to attend.
