For those blog readers in London, you might be interested in the below invitation from my colleague:
“A discussion about CSR groups and initiatives and their effectiveness.
The discussion will be from 17:30 to 19:00 on June 29th in London, hosted by Birkbeck College, part of the University of London.
It’s a roundtable debate, prompted by our recent report on the state of voluntary initiatives in CSR.
The discussion will cover some of the critical questions that CSR managers have about multistakeholder and private CSR initiatives.
Some of the topics we’ll be discussing include:
What makes some initiatives so popular?
What business benefits do companies get from joining an initiative?
How can member responsibilities and costs be more transparent? How do successful companies achieve an ethical brand without logo overload?
Please let us know if you can attend. Places are limited to around 30.
If you can’t make it, perhaps nominate a colleague to attend by contacting me below.
I can send you a free summary of the report if you would like.
