About

First Annual Egyptian CSR Forum

The First Annual CSR Forum in Egypt held with the purpose of creating a state of integration between the goals of companies operating in the Egyptian market and the government's plans to bring about development in society and achieve sustainability.

This comes through submitting ideas, evaluating the programs adopted by the companies in the field of community service as well as presenting the government's side of the social responsibility map, which the country is shaping in order to accomplish development and sustainability.

This provides an abundant amount of information that will help the companies in developing their programs in order to reach their goals.

The Forum targets more than 500 companies' representatives and experts in the field of social responsibility in order to exchange ideas and visions as well as to submit innovative solutions to develop the society and fulfill its needs.

This provides a comparative advantage for the companies' employees to be acquainted with other points of view, exchange experience and learn about new strategies and different pioneering implementation mechanisms to achieve a handling strategy between the company and society and carry out development in its true form and meaning.

The CSR Forum is the first of its kind in Egypt to become the regular annual gathering between the government and companies concerned with developing the society in order to achieve sustainable development.

FAQ

  • Why should i attend this event?

    -Participate in an event that promotes the sharing of best practices, as well as opportunities for partnerships and scaling and replicating CSR programs. -Explore ways to develop more strategic CSR initiatives ,aligning "doing good" with business objectives.
    Engage with experts and colleagues to find more meaningful ways to create value for both the business and your respective communities.

  • I am a student, can i attend?

    assume responsible roles in society. A relevant question in this area lies in knowing the extent to which students actually believe that business studies should educate about ethical and CSR issues. However, business education literature lacks data on students’ attitudes towards such education. Along this line, the main objective of this paper is to analyse the attitudes of students toward the role of business education in preparing them to make decisions affecting social needs. By using the BERSI (Business Education’s Role in addressing Social Issues) scale which incorporates questions dealing with the value of student learning about awareness of and solutions to social problems, civic leadership, discrimination, service, and general CSR issues. Firstly, the findings strongly imply that students are quite positively disposed to the idea that business education should encompass substantial coverage of social issues. Students tended far more to agree than disagree with statements in the BERSI scale. Secondly, we find that there are differences between students’ attitudes toward business education’s role in addressing social issues and what this education really is. Specifically, the values of these students’ attitudes are higher that their perceptions regarding that the business education is. Thirdly, the research results show that there were very few subjects taken during business studies in which students receive training on issues related to ethics and CSR. These results imply the need to incorporate into the business studies more social contents. Furthermore, gender was not found to have a significant effect upon students’ attitudes toward business education’s role in addressing social issues.
