Corporate social responsibility is an ever-growing topic of conversation in the corporate world. Corporate social responsibility goes beyond what is required by regulators and promotes the betterment of business practices for sustained positive change for consumers, employees, communities, and stakeholders. As companies become more forward-thinking and involved in the community through their core business practices, they create shared value for business and society
Corporate Social Responsibility Day (CSR Day), which was one of the 2016–2017 Business Week Events, provides the opportunity for students to learn from industry leaders about the growing importance of corporate social responsibility in the workplace.
