NYC Police Commissioner Bill Bratton served as the keynote speaker and kicked off the program by highlighting important updates to New York’s policies, public safety, and being a good citizen in our communities. Acknowledging the crowd, he explained that good policy was created by strong leadership, effective public safety and a commitment to giving back and supporting our communities. He emphasized that we do not need to choose between public safety and supporting our communities: these two notions work together.
“It’s a shared responsibility of all of us to successfully address problems of our community,” said Commissioner Bratton.
Daily Beast Editor-in-Chief John Avlon, who emceed the award presentation, moderated an insightful panel discussion with honorees Seth Diamond of MetroPlus, George Hulse of Healthfirst, Mark Landis, Phillips Nizer LLP and Mitch Roschelle of PricewaterhouseCoopers.
The panel emphasized the importance of utilizing public private partnerships and leveraging technology in order to implement a successful CSR program. They also discussed strategies for devising a meaningful CSR initiative that also supports the company’s bottom line.
