Laurel Donnellan, Founder & CEO
I was raised to believe anyone could find a calling and companies could provide a healthy work environment where people could change the world and reach their potential.
This simple idea still drives me and my team at Compassionate Leaders Circle. After being a manager, executive, and change consultant, I launched my own company over 20 years ago where I have developed transformational programs that build careers and organizations from the inside out.
We guide professionals to remarkable work and company leaders to creating a more compassionate culture.
Companies with purpose and corporate social responsibility outperform S&P 500 peers by 8 times.
88% of millennials look for employers with corporate social responsibility values.
