Bold Conversations And Asking “Why?”
In today’s episode, EFG’s Alli Murphy is joined by incredibly question asker and bold conversation champion Carley Stephens – the Community Affairs Manager at Gas South. Carley has experience on both the corporate and the nonprofit sides of social impact and uses that experience to lead Gas South’s corporate citizenship which includes philanthropic giving and employee community engagement.
As you might have guessed, Carley is a firm believer in the importance of having bold conversations with your partners, building trust and credibility internally and externally, and asking a variety of questions to discern the best way to move forward. She’s about to be recognized as a Top Practitioner in the Leaders in Corporate Citizenship Awards in her home city of Atlanta and she’s joining us as a speaker at EFG2022 our annual conference, also in Atlanta, in May.
