Trends in Corporate Social Responsibility, Sustainability Careers & Education

March 16, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Cornerstone Capital Group Research Analyst Sebastian Vanderzeil will participate at this event. 

Columbia Business School Alumni Club of New York

While many CSR conferences explore best practices for current professionals, this event will offer career development and guidance for current students and mid-career professionals interested in entering the CSR field.  In the past, there was no direct educational path to prepare for a CSR career and positions often were filled internally by employees with interest, but little specific CSR or sustainability education.  Now, as more top companies view CSR as an integral part of their business strategy, and with the creation of more uniform data collection and reporting standards, there is increasing professionalization within the field and more specific knowledge and skill sets are in demand.  However, what issues and skills are relevant to a particular industry or business, and subsequently what type of person will best fill that position, can vary greatly among industries.  This event will provide access to experts from a cross-section of industries and businesses that take a variety of approaches to CSR work.
