More than 250 nonprofit community partner leaders gathered at The Coca‑Cola Company’s global headquarters in Atlanta on Oct. 25 for its 2nd Community Engagement Summit. The full day of collaboration explored new ways to collectively tackle today’s most pressing societal challenges and maximize our shared impact.

Senior leaders teamed up for a panel discussion on how TCCC brings our purpose to “Refresh the World and Make a Difference” to life in local communities through philanthropic giving, employee volunteerism and strategic partnerships. The conversation highlighted how the company is strengthening community and nonprofit partners relationships into the business through the launch of three Equity Accountability Councils
