Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Short Course

This three-module, 42-hour program at University Canada West focuses on the exciting new world of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). 

Through these fully asynchronous workshops, we provide foundations in the development and management of CSR strategies. We provide an overview of the importance of CSR and some of the frameworks used by the world’s largest tech, telecommunications, manufacturing, retail and mining companies. We provide guidelines on how to improve an organization’s environmental footprint, employee engagement, transparency, waste management, human rights performance, community investment and responsible supply chain management. 

At the end of the course, attendees should leave with the tools necessary to develop inspiring initiatives and successfully promote them.

Why CSR? 

CSR is one of the fastest growing components of Fortune 500 companies. According to the 2018 Global Reporting Index, 90% now file sustainability reports annually. Formal training in CSR will improve any organization's ability to improve employee retention, clean its environmental portfolio and extend its reach into the community it operates. With US$22.89 trillion of assets professionally managed under responsible investment strategies, the time for CSR training is now.
