CBM in Collaboration with IOD Discussed Effective CSR Strategy

CBM partnered with Institute of Directors (IOD) in arranging the 12th International Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility on the 09th and 10th of February in Bangalore. The two-day conference brought together CSR leaders, policy-makers, non-governmental organizations and social entrepreneurs for discussions on creating effective and lasting changes through efficient CSR projects. 

Dr. Sara Varughese, National Director of CBM India, chaired and spoke at the panel ‘Social Entrepreneurship and CSR Projects’. “Much of the focus of current CSR projects and corporates goes to cities and urban areas, which leaves behind rural villages and needy states that are more deserving,” she said. Dr. Sara’s message to CSR leaders was to reconsider allocating their resources to the most disadvantaged communities and geographies in India in order to ensure that the services and aid reaches the neediest of the needy.

The event highlighted the importance of informed corporate giving, effectual implementation of CSR projects and continuous performance surveillance. CBM is proud to have partnered with IOD in the event and hope to see thoughtful CSR strategies to make positive and lasting changes in the lives of the less privileged.
