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.

Civic Development and Partnership Foundation (CDPF) announces a call for participation in Emerging Leaders Program for non-profit leaders.

Program Description

Emerging Leaders Program is aimed to create a cadre of Armenian, Turkish and American young professionals who lead local non-profits to promote the development of civil society and economic opportunities. The Program will bring together emerging grass root leaders aged 21-35 from Armenia, Turkey and USA that will work together to create community-based projects to build NGOs capacities, deepen ties between three countries and strengthen civil society.

Selected participants will take part in study tours to USA and Turkey and will host the USA and Turkey participants in Armenia. The study tours will include thematic discussions, trainings, professional site visits, and job shadowing activities and will be followed by on-line communication and conferences. The Program will provide participants with opportunity to share their experience and best practices, and create new links between organizations in three countries. Preliminary study tours periods are: USA – February 2011, Turkey and Armenia – April 2011. All costs related to the study tours will be covered by the Program.

The Program is implemented jointly with Academy for Educational Development (USA) and Civil Society Development Center (Turkey) with the support of the US Embassy in Ankara, Turkey.
