Corporate Social Responsibility 101: Must Haves & Industry Trends

March 1 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm MST

Corporate Social Responsibility 101: Must Haves & Industry Trends

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is no longer a nice to have, it is a business imperative. And it’s not just for big corporations. It’s expected that companies of all sizes incorporate Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) strategies into business goals and that they engage stakeholders each step of the way.

Moving CSR from a standalone program to an integrated business practice can be challenging. It requires a holistic approach with clearly defined goals in order to create both business and social value. 

Join us as we breakdown key elements of CSR, discuss business considerations and provide the building blocks to establish your own effective, integrated strategy. You will also have time to connect and debrief with other participants.

Speaker:

Jennifer Forman, former Director of Corporate Citizenship at PopSockets and an instructor of the Certification in CSR at University of Colorado Leeds School of Business.
