Free shared value courses in Hong Kong

As part of its work with the Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund (SIE Fund) in Hong Kong, CSR Asia is pleased to announce a series of free one-day courses to allow participants to understand about the concept of shared value and learn from examples of good practices in the region.

The courses follow on from the successful Shared Value Forum held in Hong Kong and offer participants the opportunity to develop new shared value initiatives within their own organisations. This presents a new opportunity to extend traditional CSR programmes into initiatives that meet social needs in a way that is commercially viable and increases the competitiveness of the company. The workshops are free to any company that has a base in Hong Kong.

The workshops are designed for companies that want a more in depth understanding of Shared Value principles, and how they can be integrated into business. The workshop will outline principles of Shared Value, demonstrate best practice and allow participants to start thinking about their own project design. All six workshops cover the same material.
