Our research team, under the management of our wonderful Bhavya Raju Mandya, has been focusing on beefing up our corporate granting info in Fundtracker. To support that focus, we decided that it would be worthwhile to attend today’s Corporate & Community Social Responsibility Conference. Bhavya, Mike, and interns Hilary Angus and Mariama Barry all made the trip this morning.

The twitter account for the conference is CCSRConference and the hashtag for the conference is CCSR2011.

Stream 3 has a focus on community granting and has lots of friendly faces from the non profit sector including Michael Allen from the Ottawa United Way, Allyson Hewitt from MARS, Stephen Huddart from the McConnell Foundation, Ian Bird from Community Foundations of Canada, Sherri Torjman from the Caledon Institute of Social Policy, Gena Rotstein from her company, Dexterity Consulting, and David LePage from the organization Enterprising Non-Profits.
