NEWARK, N.J., Aug. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Executives and their teams need the skills, network, and increased expertise to achieve community impact goals while delivering value to their organizations. The Rutgers Institute for Ethical Leadership (IEL), in partnerships with the Rutgers Institute for Corporate Social Innovation (RICSI) and the Rutgers Business School Executive Education Program (RBSEE), offer a two-day, deep dive into Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and the related fields of philanthropy, sustainability, risk management, and ethics.
In addition to an exceptional selection of faculty from Rutgers Business School, the two-day program October 17 and 18 includes a stellar ensemble of industry experts in key CSR topic areas. Registrants can expect to learn from thought leaders about the precise meaning of CSR as well as a series of tools that can be utilized to measure the return on CSR strategy, while gaining insights on the current CSR trends and practices applied by leading companies.

- The ethical, compliance, and business cases for CSR
- CSR as a career
- Ways CSR compliance can generate value
- How to create and implement CSR programs

Registration includes breakfast, lunch, dinner on Thursday evening as well as parking and course materials. The program runs Thursday, October 17, and Friday, October 18, with a special welcome reception the evening of October 16 at Rutgers Business School in Newark, NJ.
