Business & Entrepreneurship

Corporate social responsibility today is viewed as a business imperative that provides opportunities for building customer/brand loyalty while also addressing some of the world’s greatest challenges, such as climate change, sustainable development and fair trade.

CSR programs can motivate and contribute to job satisfaction, not only for women, but for all employees.
