The State of the Corporate Responsibility Profession
The CR profession is stuck in a chicken-and-egg conundrum: before employers establish a CR career path, CR needs a defined curriculum; before educational institutions invest in a defined curriculum, they need to see a clear demand for CR professionals.
Fulfilling CR’s promise as a field and profession requires deliberate action to build a consensus within the field itself and about the field in society. Watch this webcast where BCLC’s Stephen Jordan and the CROA's Richard Crespin uncover new findings from recent research into the state of the CR profession. Click here to view the full report.
