See what our past participant had to say:

“I highly recommend this course to anyone in a leadership position that wants to learn how to build a truly impactful CSR program. This goes way beyond just giving back to the community; it is about how to unify your team around causes that give them purpose and fulfillment in their lives to create sustained action that will benefit society. Whether your organization already has a mature CSR program or if you are just looking to get started, this course will provide important concepts around how to get the most out of the time you and your team dedicate to giving back. It will also teach you about how important socially conscious behavior is to the success and performance of your business, as well as the benefits to each of us as individuals in the health and prosperity of our own lives.”
