Corporate Community is Pro Bono Australia's latest initiative bringing together the willingness of business to address social issues with the community organisations already at the coal-face.
Pro Bono Australia has an extensive and well established audience. Our Corporate Community initiative delivers the first high profile platform committed to delivering CSR and community engagement news and information to a broad national audience. Take a look at the profile pages for the community's foundation members, for example:
Pro Bono Australia is dedicated to supporting the global movement that is shifting business away from purely profit-driven capitalism towards operating as integrated "social citizens."
Through Corporate Community we aim to:
- Educate businesses about the value and process of implementing social responsibility strategies into their business model.
- Provide news and information on all aspects of CSR/Shared Value and community engagement from an Australian perspective whilst drawing on global research and best practice examples.
- Allow member companies to profile their strategies, share their sustainability reports, discuss their community involvement and share their learnings.
