University-Practice Connect: Enhancing CSR Effectiveness

Aimed at fostering impactful Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives

Join us for an enriching and interactive programme designed to elevate the effectiveness of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) actions. In collaboration with practitioners, we present a proposal for a comprehensive series of capacity-building programmes aimed at fostering impactful CSR initiatives.

  • Exposure to systematic thinking about CSR effectiveness
  • Development of ideas/​programmes for CSR capacity-building, with potential for follow-up actions
  • Don’t miss this opportunity to network, learn, and share best practices in the CSR sector. Register now and contribute to this enriching experience!

Participants will receive a compendium based on materials published by the University.

The programme will be anchored by academics with substantial experience in working with practitioners and senior managers from both for-profit and not-for-profit organisations. It will provide opportunities for reflection on organisational experiences and challenges, fostering mutual learning and sharing.
