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.

CDPF is 5 years old

On March 4, 2011 Civic Development and Partnership Foundation (CDPF) celebrated its 5th anniversary.

Although 5 years is not a long period of time for an organization, it is enough to prove that hard work and endless enthusiasm can contribute to positive change in society and establishment of our organization's good reputation and trustworthiness.

Over the 5 years, we have implemented over 15 projects, distributed and administered 77 advocacy and election grants, awarded and monitored 86 scholarships, provided 136 training courses and consultations to local and international organizations, carried out 5 analytical research projects, as well as conducted 47 OD assessments. All these certainly are important achievements that give birth to further successes.

CDPF anniversaryMore than 50 representatives from local and international organizations, and state bodies came to share in our accomplishments and joy. Among them, Mr. Stephen Brager, Director of USAID Democracy and Governance Office, and Ms. Anahit Martirosyan, USAID Project Management Specialist; OSCE Ambassador H.E. Sergey Kapinos, and Mr. William Hanlon, OSCE Economic and Environmental Officer; Mr. Karen Hakobyan, Head of the Department of Legislation Analysis and Improvement at the RA Ministry of Justice; Ms. Liana Sahakyan, US Embassy Grants Manager; Mr. Francois Vezina, MAAC Chief of Party; and many others.

At the beginning of the event CDPF Board Chairman Mr. Vahan Bournazian and CDPF Director Mr. David Chityan thanked the guest for attending, stating that CDPF achievements wouldn’t have been possible without great support from its partners and volunteers. Appreciation Certificates were presented to Counterpart International and CDPF former staff members for their outstanding organizational and personal CDPF anniversarycontribution to the success of CDPF. Also the latest printed materials were presented and distributed to the guests.

As a memory keepsake of the anniversary, and to give the guests an opportunity to share their visions, a jigsaw puzzle imprinted with the CDPF logo was prepared. Guests were asked to write their wishes on the individual puzzle pieces. When assembled, the pieces of the puzzle bore witness to the true sincerity with which the guests value the future of CDPF. And we place great importance on each word, as these visions will help to makes us more responsive in our future activities as we continue forward, remaining faithful to the CDPF mission and objectives.
