CSR jobs are evolving, and along with this evolution, the role of the sustainability practitioner is changing in important and fundamental ways. The role shifts, job descriptions evolve, and skills change as organizations transition from an operational to a strategic sustainability focus. This is driven by the internal and external maturation of corporate responsibility and sustainability, the growing recognition of the business case, and the realization that future business prosperity requires external partnerships to succeed.

We sat down with Coro Strandberg, Kathryn Cooper, and Ruth Legg, to discuss how the corporate responsibility practitioner role becomes more strategic, enterprise-wide, and external. This webinar provides insights into how the jobs, roles, and departments of CSR and sustainability practitioners are adjusting to meet the new imperatives.

  • How the CSR role is transitioning from an operational to a strategic focus.
  • The new skillsets CSR and sustainability practitioners will need for their new roles.
  • How to transition the CSR department to meet the new imperatives.
  • Strategies to raise these ideas with your supervisor and HR department.
