A memorable and enriching stay can extend well beyond our hotels. That’s why The Ritz-Carlton proudly offers Impact Experiences, providing inspiring opportunities for our guests to contribute to the local community. Impact Experiences are compelling social and environmental impact activities where there is one constant – each program makes a lasting and authentic difference.
Impact Experiences offers on-property activities that can be incorporated in the conference agenda during lunch breaks, receptions and coffee breaks, including:
Partnering with the hotel’s culinary team to prepare the ingredients for a regionally adapted dish for donation to a local hunger relief organization;
Assembling school supplies and art materials in backpacks for donation to students whose academic success is threatened by poverty;
Collaborating in teams to assemble emergency preparedness kits for shipping to a disaster relief facility or community organization;
Designing and creating greetings and birthday cards for children in a local pediatric healthcare facility or children’s organization.
Impact Hour, a platform for leaders from The Ritz-Carlton Community Footprints partner organizations to showcase how they are successfully addressing social and environmental issues.
Additionally, Signature Impact Experiences invite our group guests to take part in an off-site volunteer activity, unique to the destination.
Plant Seeds in the Park
Head outside and help beautify Centennial Olympic Park, the historical 21-acre site of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games. Group guests can take a break from their regular workday and get together with colleagues to tend the gardens and even decorate during the holidays. This quiet time outside of the conference room and in nature can be a restorative, bonding experience.
Our meeting experts and catering professionals will design a reception or banquet to creatively reflect the theme of your meeting or make suggestions for entertaining or interactive concepts.
