Event Details

 

Corporate Responsibility experts from around the world and across sectors will explore how companies actively manage their global impact. The interaction of social issues including hunger, homelessness, poverty, education and climate change pose significant challenges to companies active in extraction, pharmaceuticals, tobacco, and drinks industries.  Leading experts from international business, NGOs, government and academia will examine current practice and trends.

 

The GW Institute for Corporate Responsibility is the center of scholarship and research on corporate responsibility. Its work focuses on Peace Through Commerce, environmental sustainability, corporate governance and global stakeholder strategies. In collaboration with the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education, it established the Certificate for Responsible Management for MBA candidates and has worked in partnership with the US State Department on projects that support entrepreneurs in conflict zones.


The Institute for Corporate Responsibility officially received its Charter from George Washington University in October, 2006. The institute is devoted to the development and dissemination of scholarship, including research and teaching pertaining to corporate responsibility. It serves as a vehicle for continuing education, curriculum development, conferences and seminars each of which will address needs of the School of Business, GW University, and the wider Washington, D.C. community. More specifically, ICR will leverage its location to become a leading resource to the business community through business associations and the policy community through federal agencies, Congress, local and regional governments, non-governmental organizations, and international organizations. By fostering such a business-university-government partnership—US and global—the ICR presents a unique knowledge creation and dissemination asset on our campus, building scholarly capacity for our faculty and students, and enhancing GW's prestige worldwide.
