Jeanne Mullgrav, Executive Vice President at Capalino and leader of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) group, served as a member of the “Thought Leadership” panel, an insightful discussion about CSR and what it takes to do it well.

“Corporate Social Responsibility is taking your resources and assets and using them in a very intentional and purposeful way. When it’s done well, it integrates with the morals, values, traditions and strategy of your company to become fundamentally ingrained into the culture,” said Jeanne Mullgrav.
