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.

Professional Development Exchange Program in the United States

American Councils Armenia invites eligible young legislative professionals to submit 

online applications by October 31, 2012 for the Legislative Fellows Program,

a short-term professional development exchange in the United States.

 

LFP affords promising young professionals from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Russia, Turkey, and Ukraine the opportunity to gain practical experience in, and exposure to, United States government. LFP will engage professionals who are actively involved in the legislative process and/or policy-making through their work in government, civic education organizations, citizen advocacy groups, political parties, or election monitoring organizations. The knowledge and interest of these young Eurasian professionals in American political processes will be expanded through short-term fellowships in state legislatures and city halls across the United States, as well as on Capitol Hill and in non-profit organizations that address policy issues. In addition, LFP enables Americans to travel on reciprocal visits.

 

LFP goals are to:

<!--[if !supportLists]-->§        <!--[endif]-->strengthen understanding of the U.S. legislative process;

<!--[if !supportLists]-->§        <!--[endif]-->enhance appreciation of the role of civil society plays in shaping public policy and holding government accountable;

<!--[if !supportLists]-->§        <!--[endif]-->create partnerships between institutions in the U.S. and Armenia; and

<!--[if !supportLists]-->§       <!--[endif]-->establish a common language to develop practical solutions for shared problems and concerns.

Each LFP fellow will spend a total of five to six weeks in the United States in Spring 2013. The LFP provides round-trip international and domestic transportation, visa fee and processing costs, health and accident insurance, and modest stipend. Housing and meals will be provided for program participants with U.S. host families.

 

To be eligible for LFP, applicants must:

<!--[if !supportLists]-->§       <!--[endif]-->be a citizen and resident of Armenia;

<!--[if !supportLists]-->§       <!--[endif]-->be 25 to 35 years of age at the time of application;

<!--[if !supportLists]-->§       <!--[endif]-->be a college graduate (equivalent of a Bachelor's degree or higher);

<!--[if !supportLists]-->§       <!--[endif]-->be proficient in English. If you are selected as a semi-finalist, we will give you an institutional TOEFL exam, unless you have a valid TOEFL score over 500 (paper test) or over 60 (IBT test) or its equivalent (for example, valid IELTS band 6 or higher);

<!--[if !supportLists]-->§       <!--[endif]-->have relevant experience in and commitment to a career in the public sector and/or nonprofit sector in Armenia; and

<!--[if !supportLists]-->§       <!--[endif]-->have demonstrated leadership and collaborative skills.
