The social sector is approaching a tipping point. Business Schools’ involvement in social issues range from corporate responsibility and social entrepreneurship, to social impact management, going through the bottom of the pyramid, socially responsible investing and other concepts which are being generated as we speak.
Being part of this change, Instituto de Empresa has undertaken a commitment to society, having worked for the past three decades in areas like ethics, social responsibility, sustainable development, protection of the environment, diversity management and others.
The Corporate Responsibility Community will serve as a platform to discuss these issues, the different perspectives and approaches which leading faculty, students, alumni and practitioners are taking, be it from a strategic or a pure philanthropic point of view. We look forward on building up on this conversation and bringing value to every participant of the community.
Let’s start the conversation!
