Background

Starting September 6, you were invited to join the second annual edition of the Corporate Volunteerism Council - Twin Cities (CVC-TC) Twitter Book Club to share thoughts on monthly readings in the field of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and volunteerism. This initiative was developed in response to member interest in making stronger and deeper connections within the CVC-TC network and to promote sharing ideas outside formal channels. You were encouraged to look at our work from the viewpoint of all sectors: public, private and nonprofit.


Our 2016 #CVCTCbookclub topic is aligned with our CVC-TC theme for the year: Diversity and Inclusion.


Here’s how the #CVCTCbookclub works: Follow @CVCTC on Twitter and tag @CVCTC and #CVCTCbookclub to join the conversation.


ONLINE: Each month (September through November), the #CVCTCbookclub will feature a chapter-length reading from a recent thought-provoking book or magazine. The book club moderator will kick off the discussion, engage the author(s) via Twitter, and generally help keep the conversation going throughout the month. Book club members are encouraged to share their thoughts, pros, cons, and ah-ha moments via Twitter—similar to an in-person book club.
IRL (in real life): Once a year, in January, the book club will have the chance to meet IRL to share thoughts and map their learning on both a collaborative and individual mind map. The goal is to spur imagination and inspire action while deepening connectedness.

September: 10 Ways Employees can Support Diversity and Inclusion guest blog by Robin Pedrelli in Profiles in Diversity Journal.

October: The Inclusion Dividend - Why Diversity & Inclusion Pays Off, by Mark Kaplan and Mason Donovan

November: Crowdsourcing online via Twitter - share your best examples of and resources for corporate volunteerism organically and/or intentionally supporting diversity, equity and inclusion in our community and within your organization. #IRL join us at our November CVC-TC meeting Community Connections: How ERGs + Volunteerism = Business Value
