Carlson School Executive Education Center Second floor of the Carlson School of Management
Topic: Corporate Social Responsibility: What is it?
Robert Strand, Ph.D, is an Assistant Professor of Leadership & Sustainability with the Copenhagen Business School and a Teaching Specialist with the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management.
The world recently passed a notable tipping point where over half of the world's largest 100 economies are now corporations when one compares the annual GDPs of countries with the annual revenues of corporations. While corporations are increasingly influential in our lives, public sentiment toward large corporations is increasingly negative with growing concerns that corporations do not serve the public interest but instead serve the interests of a privileged few. Some see Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as the answer to this while others see CSR as a guise for corporations to continue business as usual. In this session, Professor Robert Strand will tee these issues up for discussion while drawing upon his experiences from across Scandinavian and U.S. business communities. While more questions are likely to emerge than answers, the topics of this session represents an important suite of issues for consideration by members of the business community.
Your registration includes a full breakfast.
