While firms struggled to ensure the safety of their employees and assess the impact of COVID on their business operations, many also struggled to successfully pivot their CSR programs and giving.

It is a struggle that for many meant pausing programming, and waiting for partners to resume operations, while for others, it meant working with overseas foundations and boards to expedite approvals for a donation.

Now, after it has become clear that a "new normal" exists, the AmCham Shanghai Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility Committee would like to invite you to join our upcoming event on Wednesday, April 21, 2021, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm where we will speak about the following:

Through this event, participants will gain insights into the following:

- How to build a post-COVID CSR strategy

- Best practices & programs of Chinese and foreign firms.

We hope that participants will not only walk away with more insights but will leave with tangible ideas for how they can deploy their programs and partnerships, and we hope to see you there!
