CSR in the cur­ricu­lum

Qatar Today - - SPOTLIGHT -

A Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing be­tween Qatar Univer­sity (QU) and Qatar Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity Net­work, which sought to in­spire univer­sity stu­dents con­cern­ing the con­cept of so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity through nu­mer­ous ini­tia­tives, has been ex­tended by three years un­til 2020.

Over the past three years sev­eral ini­tia­tives have been spear­headed un­der this Moll, in­clud­ing the Na­tional CSR Re­port, aca­demic stud­ies and re­search, spe­cialised lec­tures and work­shops, and the CSR ex­hi­bi­tion, the next edi­tion of which will be hosted in March 2017 by QU. The ed­u­ca­tional event is the “first of its kind” in Qatar and aims at re­view­ing the dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ences of busi­ness lead­ers in or­der to raise stu­dents' aware­ness through the cre­ation of a re­al­is­tic en­gage­ment with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors. On the side­lines of the ex­hi­bi­tion var­i­ous work­shops will be con­ducted to tackle ma­jor is­sues such as so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity within the frame­work of Qatar Na­tional Vi­sion 2030, the part­ner­ship be­tween the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors, and the global stan­dard ISO 26000. The con­fer­ence will also deal with re­lated top­ics such as the so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity of QU, the CSR ini­tia­tive of Har­vard Univer­sity and the CSR Per­son of the Year. The or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee of the ex­hi­bi­tion and con­fer­ence is count­ing on the added value that will be achieved through the in­ter­ac­tion be­tween the stu­dents and lead­ers of multi­na­tional com­pa­nies and var­i­ous cor­po­ra­tions and agen­cies from the pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tors who will at­tend the event.
