Event Details

Ryerson University’s Institute for the Study of Corporate Social Responsibility, with co-sponsors the Ryerson CSR Student Association and the Ryerson Commerce and Government Association, is pleased to present a talk on "Latin America, CSR & Standards: A Chilean Perspective," with Dante Pesce, the founder of Centro Vincular for Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development (Pontifical Catholic University of Valparaíso), on Tuesday, May 27, 2014, from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm at Ryerson University in Toronto.   

Like other parts of the world, Latin America has an evolving relationship with the concept of CSR and the role of CSR standards as applied by governments, the private sector and civil society.  Dante Pesce played a leadership role in Latin America in the development of the ISO 26000 social responsibility standard, and has worked significantly with the wine and mining sectors on CSR issues in Chile. Dante Pesce is a political scientist and historian from the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile. He has a Masters in Public Management from Harvard University as well as a Diploma in Social Management from the Institute for Social Development (INDES) in the Inter-American Development Bank. Twelve years ago he founded Centro Vincular for Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development in the Pontifical Catholic University of Valparaíso, which focuses on applied research, training and capacity building, consulting and technology transfer and public policies in the sustainability field. He is currently special advisor on Latin American Public Policy in the United Nations Global Compact, and he participates in the following national and international committees:
- National Council on Social Responsibility in Chile led by the Ministry for Economy, Development and Tourism
- Stakeholder Council of the Global Reporting Initiative (he was also involved in the development of the latest GRI Guidelines - G4)
- Post Publication Organisation for ISO 26000 (he was also involved in the working group responsible for the development of the standard).
