Cause marketing and corporate social responsibility (CSR) are nearly interchangeable terms today—but this hasn’t always been true. In fact, ask some experts and they’ll have very distinct descriptions of what each means and how they come to life within an organization.
So what has caused these two separate practices to become synonymous? What do these practices look like today? How are they practiced differently from the past?
Join Craig Bida of Cone Communications and Dave Stangis of Campbell Soup Company to learn about the narrowing divide between cause marketing and CSR, and what these practices look like today at companies. Craig and Dave will share the latest research and their decades of experience helping to bring social good to companies.
