A strong economy supported by a secure workforce is important. Jobs that pay livable wages and provide good benefits afford workers the disposable income to increase economic security. More often than not, we lean on Corporations to advance the cause of the livable wage through their social responsibility and improve the well-being of American workers. The program will discuss successful livable wage strategies used by corporations and provide ways to increase the value of jobs while strengthening the business.

This program is part of the 2018 Corporate Giving Webinar Series presented by Indiana Philanthropy AllianceForefrontCouncil of Michigan Foundations, and Philanthropy Ohio. The series is designed for staff involved with corporate foundations, advised funds at a community foundation, or giving programs; but grantmakers of all types are invited to attend.
