Business as usual is not an option... What’s a company to do?

Trust in business is low, yet expectations of business are rising as government has proved its inability to make progress against critical social issues.

This paradox is at the heart of the changing social contract and is an issue all community involvement and corporate citizenship managers need to understand to be successful in their roles.

The Institute on Corporate Citizenship course examines how leading companies respond to this dynamic using corporate citizenship as a tool to create new value for all stakeholders.

Key takeaways: 

  • Learn about the changing role of business in society
  • Learn how emerging expectations are creating new risks and opportunities for business generally and your business specifically
  • Understand the conceptual simplicity and the operational complexity of corporate citizenship
  • Identify the "stage" of corporate citizenship development in your company

Faculty: Ken Freitas
