29 September   MEETING
Community Builders Meeting 5
Responsible Business Leadership: Building Disability Confidence

29 September | Thursday | 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Pinsent Masons, 50th Floor, Central Plaza,18 Harbour Road, Wan Chai (map)

We know from our diversity work with companies in Asia that disability is a subject that companies are beginning to address. Some companies are focusing their disability initiatives on community and outreach programmes. Others, particularly in countries such as Japan and China where governments have set quotas for the recruitment of people with disabilities, are looking to see how they can bring people with disabilities into their organisation as employees. After exploring the subject of disability from a personal perspective, we will take things back to the workplace in this session and discuss how we can, as employees and/or managers, build “disability confidence” – a term borrowed from the Business Disability Forum in the UK.

Responsible Business Network Meeting 4
CSR 3.0: Building an Open Innovation Ecosystem
LexisNexis, Suite 3901, 39/F, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queen's Road East, Wan Chai, Hong Kong

From traditional concepts of CSR such as volunteering and philanthropy, to the more advanced Shared Value principle, the landscape of today’s CSR is rapidly changing. The same applies to the business environment. Therefore, it is imperative to understand the critical role CSR plays, and how to apply strategic business knowledge and competencies to maximise each company’s investment to the community. CSR 3.0, coined by Intel, refers to businesses going beyond the traditional framework of CSR, by engaging organisations from all sectors and facilitating a platform that allows everyone to identify the causes of social issues and share resources to come with an effective solution.

6 December   EVENT
Community Investment Forum 4
Closing the Strategy-to-Execution Gap in CSR Initiatives 
Hong Kong

Like any business strategy, the chasm between strategic intent and execution in a company’s responsible business strategies jeopardises performance while increasing risk exposure. We have seen first-hand how local offices fail to implement CSR strategies set by global headquarter due to difference in landscape, priorities and more. The Forum presents a real-life case example of a Hong Kong company manages to minimise this gap to deliver results. It will also provide companies with guidelines for achieving better alignment between CSR strategy and execution, based on Community Business’ experience of advising local companies for over a decade.

For enquires or registration, please contact Sammy Tsang.
