Fighting Aids as Corporate Policy – Net Philanthropy – Upcoming Event

February 4, 2011  • Paul L. Sparks

Fighting AIDS as Corporate Policy
“We Agree” that Chevron’s campaign to raise awareness about their work fighting HIV/AIDS is good advertising. In fact, it’s similar to the wildly successful approach taken by the Nike Foundation’s Girl Effect. The motives behind corporate social responsibility may be questionable, but framing this priority issue as a “MUST” for corporate policy is bold. Tell us what you think, comment below!

Net Philanthropy Flops and Futures might go bust. The Internet giant’s foray into philanthropy is precipitously scaling back. Maybe it was poor planning. In our experience “reinvent the world” is not a terribly realistic benchmark. Hopefully the past won’t be prediction for the now operational (beta), a project of Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes. Remember, we mentioned it a while back.

Upcoming Event: Internet Advocacy, Networking and Alcohol (what’s not to love?)
The Internet Advocacy Routable has been a forum for discussion since 2005. It’s a great place to learn about cutting-edge advocacy strategy and meet other professionals. Click here to check out and RSVP for next Tuesday’s event.
