The second day of CLC will deep dive into engaging learning experiences in Employee Volunteerism (with a session by MyGov on Self4Society), Mapping CSR to SDGs, Design Thinking for Development and Best Practices for Monitoring and Evaluation
Shri Arvind Gupta, CEO, MyGov as the Guest of Honor for the event, will share his immense knowledge and experience on how the private sector through volunteering and CSR initiatives can work with the government to help create sustainable impact. He will also talk about how corporates can align their volunteering goals to the national causes through the Self4Society portal.
The CLC has grown over the years to become the largest IT-BPM specific CSR conference. This year the CLC will host the leadership from across all relevant stakeholder groups involved in the CSR ecosystem – The IT Industry, NGOs, Social Enterprises and Ecosystem support agencies. Some of the participating organizations include – IBM, Intel, Teamlease, Labournet, Atal Innovation Mission, NSDC, Tata Strive, Accenture, Akshaypatra, ACC Limited, Cognizant, Vodafone and Deutsche Bank, Dalberg, PwC, Sattva Consulting, and Storywallahs.
