Corporate Social Responsibility at causeIMPACTS
Social responsibility and corporate citizenship are key values for causeIMPACTS. We believe that every company should give back to the world and we practice what we preach. Every causeIMPACTS project creates positive impacts in communities. These impacts may advance social or environmental justice, build community unity, or forge cross-sector partnerships in order to cause collective impact, In addition to our consulting work, the causeIMPACTS team gives of their time and talent in a variety of ways to ensure that we practice what we preach.
