Companies are finding success by supporting community wellness and a culture of health in their workplace.

Join us for a tactical conversation on how to make your community a better place to live through investments in programs and partnerships that promote healthy lifestyles. During this webinar, you’ll learn how to leverage your company’s giving, wellness, and human resource assets to improve employee and community health.

Corteva Agriscience™ (formally Dow AgroSciences) will discuss the success of its community garden as it relates to the company’s philanthropic, wellness, and business goals. Anthem will share data on how health contributes to a company’s bottom line and how they work with myriad of stakeholders to achieve employee and community wellness goals.
