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.

"The Dark Triumph of Daniel Sarkisyan" novel by Wendy Elliot

Let's Unite and Make the Publishing of the best friend of Armenians, the Canadian author's novel a Reality!

About the novel

The Dark Triumph of Daniel Sarkisyan is set in the first Republic of Armenia (1918-1920). It’s a novel full of suspense, mystery and intrigue. This novel is about Daniel and his ten-year-old sister Mariam, who are alone in the world. They’ve been scrambling to survive the squalor of Yerevan, the new capital city which has been overrun with war refugees. When Daniel finally lands a job with the rich and powerful Gagik, he feels lucky. He quickly changes his mind. Within days, Gagik proves to be selfish, violent and just plain mean. Within a week, Daniel is caught in a dangerous, downward spiral of deceit, corruption and treachery. Within months, and against his will, he’s embroiled in espionage and murder. Set against the deadly clash between the Ottoman Empire, the Soviet Russian Army, and the ill-fated optimism of a struggling new republic, Daniel races against time to protect his sister, uncover Gagik’s diabolical plot, and maintain his integrity in the face of overwhelming odds.

About the Author

Wendy Elliot has visited Armenia in 2009 and this visit gave her inspiration to find out more about Armenia and Armenian people. Later on in 2012 The Dark Triumph of Daniel Sarkisyan has been written by a good friend of Armenia Wendy Elliot.

How the funds will be used

There are some things that Wendy Elliot can do herself (design of printed books, conversion to e-books, and basic website design), but she need your help to finance a modest run of 100 books ($10 each, printed on the local university’s Espresso on-demand machine), website domain name, hosting, and ecommerce set-up ($750), Armenian translation ($600), a consultation with a book publicist ($600) and Indiegogo and transaction fees (depending on achieving the goal) for a total of $3,500. (As of January 22, US$1=C$1).

Note: You don't need a PayPal account to contribute; you can use a credit card that goes through PayPal.

Why Armenia?

Wendy Elliot has made several trips to Armenia as a volunteer for an international development agency, working with Armenians, who were (and are) trying very hard to develop a civil society. She has made many friends, knows first hand the problems they are up against, and admires them greatly. The initiative for this book came from an effort to help a friend who has few resources and few prospects in life, and who will share in the profits of this novel.
