Northwestern Mutual wins the 6th Annual Film Festival Award
In a red carpet moment at the 2014 International Corporate Citizenship Conference, Northwestern Mutual was announced as the winner of the 6th Annual Corporate Citizenship Film Festival Award.
The Domino Effect of Childhood Cancer
Northwestern Mutual's winning video, "The Domino Effect of Childhood Cancer," was created to increase awareness about childhood cancer and the company’s commitment to the cause. In partnership with Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation and Starlight Children's Foundation, the Northwestern Mutual Foundation’s Childhood Cancer Program funds childhood cancer research and provides support to families fighting this disease. The "domino effect" addressed in the video looks at how a cancer diagnosis affects not only the patient, but family and friends as well.
