This is a press release originally posted: New York, NY (PRWEB) February 25, 2009 — Whether corporate social responsibility (CSR) has earned a seat at the table or not is no longer in question, the function has truly arrived and is gaining traction around the world. The question now becomes, will CSR initiatives survive the economic downturn and inevitable cost cutting?
To add some insight to this and other relevant topics, Development Crossing recently launched its virtual roundtable of executives engaged in corporate responsibility and international development. Through an ongoing series of executive interviews and other resources, the network aims to capitalize on the shared experience of its members to solve common challenges, share best practices and increase collaboration between all relevant stakeholders involved in sustainable development.
The community is designed as a shared resource center and networking platform for professionals engaged in corporate responsibility and international development, which enables users to create profiles, manage and contribute to discussions, create groups and events, and directly connect with other like-minded individuals. Several thousand members strong already, with backgrounds ranging from corporate social responsibility and microfinance to sustainable tourism and non-profit management, the network serves to enhance collaboration and facilitate idea exchange.
Development Crossing continues to accept new members who believe their expertise and experience may add value to the community. To learn more about Development Crossing, visit Development Crossing.
