The March 20 session of CCSR (spring 2019 cohort) focused on Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) as a key element of any Corporate Social Responsibility program. Companies often pursue CSR because their leaders recognize the potential for business to function in a way that serves all stakeholders well, not only shareholders. Businesses can start by committing to a diverse and inclusive work environment, to create an economy that enables all people to thrive, now and in the future.
Student prepared by taking at least one assessment offered by Project Implicit, a non-profit organization whose goal is to educate the public about hidden (implicit) biases.
The February 6 session of Certificate in Corporate Social Responsibility was a new addition to the CCSR course this semester. The session featured guest speakers Kara Peck, Director of Business Development at B Lab; and Jessica Saba, Media Relations and Corporate Responsibility Manager for 1908 Brands. Kara and Jess introduced students to the B Economy, including Certified B Corps, Benefit Corporations, and the B Impact Assessment.

As an organization, we’ve always focused on leveraging collective impact to accomplish what can’t be done alone.
It is with that spirit of collaboration in mind that I and the B:CIVIC board of directors are excited to announce that B:CIVIC will partner with the Denver Metro Chamber Leadership Foundation.
Why are we teaming up? Both organizations are committed to strengthening Colorado through community leaders and organizations that want to make a difference here. This partnership lets us grow our impact. When we combine the expertise from both boards of directors and the dedicated staff, volunteers and alumni, we can serve more individuals and their organizations over time. The more people we engage, the more we can move the needle to grow individual and organizational giving and volunteerism in the community.
B:CIVIC is a proud partner of Metro Volunteers and sponsor of their 13th annual Heart of Volunteerism: Vacations, Vino, & Volunteerism (HOV) event.
