conference’s 2019 International Corporate Citizenship Film Festival
DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mary Kay Inc., an international leader in corporate social
responsibility, announced today its convening sponsorship of the Boston
College Center’s 2019 International Corporate Citizenship Conference.
Taking place in Dallas from April 28 – 30, the conference invites CSR
professionals to connect with colleagues, learn practical strategies for
deepening engagement, discover tactics to unleash the full power of
teams, and find inspiration to set ambitious goals in community
involvement, environmental sustainability and more.
“Mary Kay is a thought leader in corporate social responsibility,” said
Dr. Lucy Gildea, Chief Scientific Officer at Mary Kay. “It’s important
to understand industry trends when it comes to local and global giving,
employee engagement, community impact, sustainability and program
analysis. We’re excited to partner again with Boston College’s Center
for Corporate Citizenship and to continue to serve as a leading example
of what it means to be a good corporate citizen.”
As part of the conference, Boston College Center for Corporate
Citizenship hosted the 2019 International Corporate Citizenship Film
Festival as an opportunity for companies to tell their stewardship
stories and be recognized for their achievements. Mary Kay tied for
first place in the small business category and was awarded fan favorite

company’s commitment to ending domestic violence.
The conference hosts more than 600 corporate citizenship professionals,
creating a supportive and lively environment for broad-range dialogue
and learning. This year’s conference focuses on the powerful
relationship between people, purpose and progress. Dr. Lucy Gildea will
kick-off the breakfast general session on April 29, where she will speak
on Mary Kay’s cancer grants program and how it is turning the program
into an inspiring citizenship effort.

goals,” said Gildea. “Our business model enriches millions of women’s
lives around the world through a rewarding business opportunity. By
striving to both end domestic violence and eliminate cancers affecting
women, Mary Kay has deeply embedded in its culture the importance of
