Corporate Social Responsibility and Business Ethics

General Description

Although not new in the developed part of the world, the concepts of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and ethical leadership are making first steps in gaining popularity in developing countries, with Armenia being not an exception. Nowadays many Armenians can hardly explain what constitutes to be a good corporate citizen, which is quite often confused with engaging in charitable activities. It is obvious that any for-profit entity is mainly concerned with earning and accumulating wealth, but the current worldwide trend is that this is not the only determinant of their existence and long-term success. More and more businesses realize that they do not operate in a vacuum; continuous interaction with different stakeholders is critical, with serious considerations for the environment, economically vulnerable populations, and the society as a whole.

In light of the above, it is therefore paramount to raise ethical competence and integrity standards of local managers for them to succeed in today's competitive and highly demanding world. With this in mind, the given training is aimed at familiarizing the audience with the theoretical framework for corporate social responsibility and business ethics, addressing the issues of its practical application, and exploring its contributions and limitations to the society.

Journalist Experience Exchange Program

ICFJ is bringing together media professionals from Armenia, Turkey and the United States to introduce to them new skills and help develop professional relationships and partnerships that will help all parties better understand—and work with—one another.

Throughout the course of this multi-phase program, a dozen Armenian and Turkish media professionals will be paired up to develop cross-border reporting projects.

From there they will work alongside one another by participating in U.S.-based internships before participating in conferences in Ankara and Yerevan to help develop to demonstrate best journalistic practices.

By participating in these conferences as well as online courses and international workshops and internships, those selected for the program will pick up new skills in investigative journalism and journalism ethics, as well as learn the customs and cultures of one another's homeland to better the quality of their own journalism endeavors.

The program will begin with an online course, "Freedom of Expression in the Digital Age," which will guide 22 selected Armenian and Turkish media professionals as they work in pairs - one Armenian with one Turk - to develop cross-border reporting projects. The twelve best journalists, six Turks and six Armenians, will then take part in a four-week, U.S.-based program with media internships as they continue to develop their cross-border projects. The participants will be sent to their internships in pairs.

During the program's next phase, an additional 15 of the core group's colleagues in each country, plus six U.S. media professionals who hosted the internships will join the group of 12 for conferences that ICFJ, the core group of participants and ICFJ's local partners will organize to demonstrate best journalistic practices. The conferences will take place in Ankara and Yerevan. The conferences will be followed by a second online course - in investigative reporting - with the core group and additional English-speaking journalists from both countries.
