Charles Schwab Foundation President Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz to Share Insights on Strategic Philanthropy at the Corporate Leadership Breakfast Hosted by Larkin Street Youth Services and PwC US

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Jan 31, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Larkin Street Youth Services and Title Sponsor PwC US will host the annual Corporate Leadership Breakfast on February 5, 2013, at the City Club, attended by members of San Francisco's business community.


This year's guest speaker, Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz, president, Charles Schwab Foundation and senior vice president, Charles Schwab & Co., Inc., will be sharing her personal and professional journey toward building a mission for Schwab's strategic philanthropy.

"Passion is the greatest driver of high-impact philanthropy," said Schwab-Pomerantz. "For business leaders who want to make a positive impact in their communities, focusing on a social issue they care deeply about and that aligns with the business makes all the difference." "PwC, with Larkin Street Youth Services, is proud to host this unique event, which provides the San Francisco business community with a platform to encourage and inspire one another to better serve the needs of our city," said Jim Henry, Managing Partner of PwC San Francisco. "As a firm, PwC is focused on giving back to the communities where our people live and work and helping develop the next generations of leaders. We're pleased to collaborate with local businesses in a common goal to provide a brighter future for the youth of San Francisco." Larkin Street has served over 70,000 youth since first opening in 1984. The Corporate Leadership Breakfast raises funds and awareness to help support Larkin Street's 25 programs housed in 15 sites in San Francisco. Larkin Street serves about two-thirds of San Francisco's homeless youth and is the primary provider of housing for transitional age youth in San Francisco. For every young person who exits street life, society saves more than five times the cost of long-term intervention.

Featured Whitepapers

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
