Event Description

Building stronger, more impactful programmes - a goal for all programme leaders to ensure the greatest return for companies, partners and the employees that participate in these experiential learning programmes.  Emerging World, the host of the webinar, refers to these experiences as Corporate International Service Learning (CISL).

CISL programmes are becoming a popular and strategic tool for companies looking to build the talent and skills of their workforce while addressing real needs in markets where they do business – particularly in high growth emerging markets where the opportunities are seen as greatest.

The CISL Impact Benchmark Study is the most robust piece of research of its kind, completed in collaboration with leading global organizations BD, Credit Suisse, EY, GSK and Microsoft.  It includes responses from over 300 employees from across these organizations, who report on the long term impact of CISL experiences. The Study has just been launched and this is your opportunity to dive deeper into the results.

Join this webinar on 19th November (1030-1130 EST, 1530-1630 GMT, 1630-1730 CET) on the new CISL Impact Benchmark Study.

Panelists include:

  • Matthew Farmer, Managing Director, Emerging World
  • Jennifer Farrington, Director, Social Investing, BD
  • Eva Halper, Director, Global Education Initiative and Global Citizens Programme, Credit Suisse
  • Winnie Karanu, MySkills4Afrika Global Programme Manager, Microsoft

During the session Emerging World Managing Director, Matthew Farmer, will be joined by guest speakers from leading organisations BD, Credit Suisse and Microsoft that participated in the study to discuss how to structure CISL programmes to create greater impact.

The webinar objectives include:

  • Learning to make your programme ‘sizzle’ by appealing to corporate responsibility, learning and development and inclusive business stakeholders.
  • Understanding the impact data that demonstrates the business value of CISL programmes.
  • Appreciating which components of CISL programmes effect impact, including recommendations on how to strengthen programmes.
  • Discovering how to participate in the study moving forward .
