Webinar: Communicating the GC
On Thursday 21 March and Tuesday 16 April the UNGC UK Network, in collaboration with UN Global Compact HQ, held a webinar to help participants communicate about the UNGC. Webinar facilities were generously provided by Reed Elsevier.
When a company becomes a signatory to the UN Global Compact, the CEO makes a number of commitments, one of which is to: Advance the Global Compact through advocacy and active outreach to peers, partners, clients, consumers and the public at large.
We recognize that communicating about the UNGC can be quite challenging. To address this problem, our Webinar answered the questions:
- What is the Global Compact?
- Why is it worth communicating?
- How should you communicate about it?
Many thanks to Sean Cruse from the Global Compact office and Reed Elsevier for their support.
Please note: due to technical difficulties, we unfortunately had to pause the webinar between 00:13:40 and 00:22:05 – we recommend skipping over this section of the recording.
