About this book

This book brings the focus of corporate responsibility back to the people who are driving change in contemporary practice. Expanding current conceptualizations of CSR, the chapters come together to explore the work of a range of individuals in charge of CSR practices in contributing to societal good. Including topics such as leadership, social entrepreneurship, responsible management education, non-profit organizations and citizen activism, it aims to expand current mainstream understanding of the role individuals have in shaping CSR theory, practice, policies, and discourses.
