CBSR's first Professional Network Group call of 2017, titled "Managing Risk Blindspots & Accelerating Social Outcomes" is intended for risk management and sustainability practitioners. Guest Speaker, Stephanie Garrett (INLE Social Performance), will provide insight into how recent landmark developments in the global conversation on climate change alongside high profile incidents related to supply chains have shone a spotlight on the connection between business activities and environmental and social impacts.
Widely endorsed, globally accepted standards and frameworks have been established to address these issues; however the challenge of operationalizing them remains. This webinar, presented by INLE Social Performance, will provide insights into emerging trends and issues related to social impact and demonstrate how a rights-based approach can be a powerful tool for managing your corporate risk "blindspots" and accelerating positive social outcomes.
