Bradford College is taking a look at organisational ethics and corporate social responsibility. We want to draw together various initiatives that are already in place, and review what we might do next. We want to find out about good practice in similar institutions and link to useful resources.
And in 2014 the College will host the 13th International Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility so our mapping activity now will help us prepare for that event.
Our blog is a way for me (Ruth Wilson) to keep a record of the steps we are taking, and for others inside and outside the College to comment, give advice and share what they are doing. My colleague Dr Khosro Jahdi is an expert on Marketing Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility, and he will be adding posts from time to time, and we hope that other members of the College with an interest in this field will join in as well.
So please feel free to comment or get in touch, and welcome to our ethics and social responsibility blog. You can contact me (Ruth) at the College on r.wilson2 at bradfordcollege.ac.uk
About me: I work full-time at Bradford College on a range of initiatives, including co-ordinating our research ethics committee and procedures, and helping raise the profile of our arts and cultural events and activities. I have a strong interest in ethics, and have done various short courses on ethics.
