More Information on Accelerate Communities

CECP Accelerate Communities provide the opportunity for corporate responsibility leaders from CECP companies to take a deeper dive into priority topic areas with their peers to advance their strategies and the field. These year-long communities, which launch in fall 2020 and conclude in summer 2021, draw upon curated CECP and partner expertise, virtual peer meetings, best-practice sharing, and framework creation. Accelerate Communities started in 2017 because companies asked CECP to offer more robust insights to advance their specific companies’ priorities beyond Essential Services and in turn, to advance the field. CECP offers a series of Opt-In Opportunities where companies pay an additional participation fee; Accelerate Communities are one of those offered.

Launching September 2020

We invite CECP-affiliated companies to join one or more of the following Accelerate Communities (additional fees apply):
