Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) increases long-term profits and stakeholder trust through positive public relations and high ethical standards to reduce business and legal risk by taking responsiblity for corporate actions. This Speciality is a "passion project" for our Principal. Dr. L. Diane Bennett believes that CSR can improve the bottom line AND be a catalytic force for positive social change.
Dr. Bennett has over 35-years civic engagement and corporate social responsibility experience leading government, corporate and nonprofit campaigns. She has said that her 5-years as global Diversity Director for Habitat for Humanity International "changed my life"; an alliance that she maintains. She has an extensive network of clients and partners, many of whom were engaged working with the National Pan Hellenic Council (NPHC), Conference of National Black Churches (CNBC) and with Microsoft's "Build Your Business" initiative, to name a few.
Her doctorate in Public Policy and Administration enhanced her career experience and expanded her research interest in collaborative governance, which she believes is truly the "marriage" of effective civic engagement and corporate social responsibility. CSR is the social impact needed to strengthen existing linkages between organizations, stakeholders and community partners to help government meet our most systemic societal challenges.
"Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet. We all breath the same air.
We all cherish our children's future. And we all are mortal." -John F. Kennedy
