Building a Culture of Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility, Community Investment, Civic Engagement, however you label it, making a difference in a community is a growing mission in many organizations.

When Rollins Crummer Graduate School of Business and the Edyth Bush Institute for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership teamed up to plan their second annual leadership panel, they set out to respond to this growing trend by selecting a topic that would promote civic philanthropy and engage Central Florida businesses of all sizes. They believed that collectively, engaged businesses elevate the conversation, strengthen the community and deepen the impact.

To lead the panel discussion on “Community Engagement: How Companies of Any Size Can Make a Difference” they engaged Kecia Carroll, author of a whitepaper on a similar topic. Joining Kecia were some of Central Florida’s top CSR leaders including Conductive Education Center of Orlando (CECO), Employment Technologies, Florida Blue, Orlando City Soccer Club, Whole Foods Market and Winter Park Construction.

The objective of the event was to help the business community expand its awareness and approach to cross-sector collaborations and community investment, and in doing so, assist in building the capacity of nonprofit organizations to deliver upon their missions. Based on the better-than-expected attendance, feedback from participants and ongoing conversations on the topic, we succeeded.
