Join us for the CSR Insight Tuesdays exciting inaugural event!

Our first session will begin at the beginning where we will discuss the definition of CSR and all that it encompasses. Is there a difference between corporate citizenship, corporate social responsibility, corporate responsibility (CR), and ESG (environment, social and governance)? Are CSR and cause marketing one and the same? How does social entrepreneurship differ from CSR? What is the European perspective on CSR and does it differ from here in the U.S.? How do sustainable investing, corporate community involvement and carbon footprint reduction fit together?

We will explore these and other similar concepts to establish a framework for our events and learning going forward.

CSR Insight Tuesdays was formed as an educational avenue to extend members? understanding of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and drill deeper into all of its aspects. It is a kind of book club for professionals - we read and discuss chapters of CSR books, white papers, articles, reports and studies as well as view webinars, instructional videos and other media.

CSR Insight Tuesdays events will occur once a month on a Tuesday and are open to anyone, experts and novices alike. We invite topical experts to contact us about submitting their CSR literature to the group for discussion. Organizers Amy and Laura can be reached at [address removed].
