Wondering why this may be relevant and beneficial to you or your company?
Consider that more and more businesses are evaluating their success on the “triple bottom line” – their impact on people and the planet, as well as making a profit, in response to increasing expectations from consumers, shareholders, and society to be more socially responsible.  In turn, companies and their teams are looking to learn best practices that can help deliver value to their companies and the communities they serve. The CESR Certification in Corporate Social Responsibility is a valuable and effective means to gain this understanding and skills.

Here is what Lora Ledermann, CCSR graduate and Founder of Scream Agency (a B:CIVIC Member) has to share about her experience in the certification program:

If you’ve been trying to find the perfect professional development course on Corporate Social Responsibility, look no further. CU Boulder’s CCSR class gives you relevant readings, tools, benchmark studies, and worksheets to use in your current (or future) position. And with smart, experienced instructors who keep you on task but still allow for collaboration and sharing, you’ll get the best of the professional-meets-academia worlds.
