"One of the most useful aspects of the CSR program was the ability to compare notes with a diverse group of leaders. In an emerging field with a limited number of practitioners, the program offered an invaluable opportunity to obtain input on my business strategies. I left energized and excited about developing and supporting programs that deliver environmental and social results-while at the same time driving business results."
