Is it Good, or Good-Washing?

Over recent years there have been a slew of organizations that have come out with “good” agendas, manifestos or found their “good” purpose. And while some have truly embraced their mission and delivered on this through tangible action, others haven’t lived up to their rhetoric. As consumers learn all they ever wanted to know about the impact of their donations, volunteer efforts and cause-related purchases, brands and philanthropic organizations will need to ensure their credentials are up to the scrutiny. Could all this “good” talk could be “good-washing”? In this session, we’ll discuss how we can hold organizations to account and make sure they’re truly delivering on their “good” intentions.
