SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY IN BUSINESS IN THE 21ST CENTURY
Wednesday, December 1, 2010
Student Center Theater, Sondra and David S. Mack Student Center
The devastating effects of the global financial crisis coupled with public outrage over excessive executive compensation has weakened confidence in corporate America and, consequently, intensified interest in corporate social responsibility (CSR). Corporations are challenged to respond appropriately while business schools, charged with shaping future business leaders, increasingly recognize the critical importance of incorporating CSR practices into their curriculum.
To address these urgent issues, The Frank G. Zarb School of Business and the Center for the Study of International Financial Services and Markets – as part of Hofstra's 75th anniversary celebration – will host Social Responsibility in Business in the 21st Century on December 1st, 2010. Funded by The Broadridge Foundation, the conference will assemble a group of prominent business leaders, regulators and educators to discuss a range of issues and ideas to merge business and social interests in the 21st century. The conference will also discuss the challenges facing educators in designing the appropriate curriculum to teach corporate responsibility to business students
