Welcome to CoffeeTalk

CoffeeTalk is a series of virtual online conversations designed to discuss key trends, ideas, challenges, and opportunities in corporate social responsibility. Hosted by CyberGrants team members, tune in to hear from top leaders across industries discuss success stories and exchange ideas related to their corporate philanthropy programs. No slides, just candid conversations.

So, grab your iced coffee, gather your team (virtually), and join the conversation as we lead discussions about the most important topics facing the industry - from accelerating social impact, to virtual volunteering, to the SDG Giving Landscape.
