The program “Business is changing the society” has been developed jointly by the Heinrich Böll Foundation in Russia and todogood together with intellectual volunteers from the leading Russian consulting and business companies. This is a new interdisciplinary program that combines lecture, business-brainstorming, case-study and training formats.
Its target audience is managers responsible for business development, heads of Corporate Social Responsibility departments and owners of large and medium businesses.
We have developed this program based on the results of the study of Russian companies’ corporate social responsibility programs. The participants of this program will become the first with whom we will share the findings of this study.
How can me organize our business in a way that brings benefits to all stakeholders, be it you, your clients, and the society at large? What is the connection between your company’s corporate social responsibility programs and sustainability of your business in the future? What is the fast way of finding those whom we can help? What is the effective way to support civil initiatives? What is strategic responsibility? What do we understand by the terms “impact investing” and “green issues” today? These are the questions that we are going to answer on 11-12 of June during the workshop “Business is changing the society”.
We will be evaluating the impact of the existing corporate social responsibility strategies on society and on business and discussing how to raise awareness about your responsibility. We will introduce new approaches to understanding “civil society” and “social activity”. Together with you, we will be examining the most interesting global and Russian cases, talking about risks and ethics and discussing the opportunities to become companies with a better corporate social responsibility reputation.
The program is designed for 12 participants only to ensure deep work and exchange of experience. However, some lectures will be public, giving you an opportunity to invite your colleagues.
Our special guest speakers are a co-founder of the company FAF Brazil Felipe Croce and a business consultant, presidium member of the foundation of the GLS Bank – GLS Treuhand and a co-founder of the Heinrich Böll Foundation Lukas Beckmann.
