Apollo and Roadtrip Nation executives will present strategies for
businesses to engage millennials to help drive social impact
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 18, 2014--
Apollo Education Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:
APOL) and Roadtrip
Nation will join some of today’s most inspiring leaders, thinkers
and practitioners at the Social Innovation Summit 2014 on Nov. 19 in
Redwood City, Calif. Pat Gottfried, vice president of Corporate Social
Responsibility for Apollo Education Group, and Roadtrip Nation
Co-Founder Mike Marriner will participate in an interactive workshop
exploring how organizations can develop corporate social responsibility
strategies that will resonate with the millennial generation.
“Roadtrip Nation captures stories of impact from all across the country.
We are thrilled to partner with Apollo Education Group at this year’s
Social Innovation Summit to magnify these narratives, exposing employers
to the various approaches in engaging millennials through social
responsibility,” said Marriner.
The workshop, titled Engaging Millennial Workforce is the Roadmap to
Achieving Social Impact and Success, will explore the need to build
relationships with millennial employees to spark their passions and
create opportunities to engage their professional and personal
interests. Attending employers will join in discussions on developing a
“triple platform” of involvement at the company, department and personal
levels to better develop the meaningful relationships around social
responsibility that millennials demand from organizations.
“Millennials are highly engaged in social responsibility, but very
specific about how they do it, focusing on supporting individuals and
issues rather than organizations and institutions,” said Gottfried.
“Apollo Education Group is excited to join with Roadtrip Nation and the
Social Innovation Summit to engage in opportunities with employers to
help them better learn how to enact real community action amongst their
millennial workforce in a way that’s meaningful to the organization, the
employee and the community.”
The Social Innovation Summit is a twice-annual event taking place at the
United Nations and Silicon Valley where leaders in technology,
investment, philanthropy, international development and business come

not only explore the next big thing, but to build it. To learn more
