Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability skills are often underrated in the bigger picture of a business. After years of implementing operational Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability programs, many practitioners realize they need to evolve their strategy, team structure, job descriptions, and skillsets to achieve greater business and societal results.

What do next-generation skills and practices look like? This webinar will help you navigate those skills and gain better understanding of what future skills will be needed for the complex and strategy focused work that will be expected from practitioners.

Webinar Highlights

Chantale Despres, Director of Sustainability at CN, presents a 60-minute webinar that provides insights into how the role of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability practitioners is adjusting to meet new business imperatives in the following ways:

  • Roles are being repositioned, becoming embedded more closely into business operations,
  • Job descriptions are evolving to include a more strategic focus on the overall organization and its external operations,
  • New skills are being prioritized to help practitioners build capacity in social innovation, external collaboration, and systems thinking.

This webinar is designed to enable practitioners to achieve greater influence and success – for the benefit of their organization and society.
