Are companies like The Dow Chemical Company, SAP, Merck, GlaxoSmithKline and EY using skills-based volunteering as an entry point to new markets, bolster local business climates or to strengthen their capacity to do business in these areas?

What challenges do the corporate volunteers face in these new markets? What role do NGOs play? And is increased private sector investment truly influencing international development? Join CSRwire's Editorial Director Aman Singh in conversation with the CSR and sustainability leaders at these companies live on Twitter for an hour on March 4, 2014 at 1pm ET.

  • Brian Grill, Executive Vice President of Merck Foundation
  • Manu Juneja, Global Engagement Manager, GlaxoSmithKline
