CONCEPT NOTE

Corporate Social Responsibility is an obligation by the corporate to contribute to the societal development, while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families, as well as of the local community and the society at large. It is a concept whereby organizations consider the interests of society by taking the responsibility for the impact of their activities on the customers, employees, shareholders, communities and the environment in all aspects of their operations.

A radical metamorphosis is seen with the CSR practices across India and the world over with the CSR wings becoming more functional, dynamic and vibrant. An apparent transition from giving as an obligation or charity to giving as a strategy or responsibility is being witnessed. CSR is slowly moving away from charity and dependence to building partnership and empowerment. Several innovative programmes in areas of public health, education, community development, environment, microfinance and related areas are being developed. These programmes are developed bearing in mind the local cultural context and the needs of people. Apart from devoting funds, expertise in terms of knowledge and human resource is also allocated for successful implementation of these programmes.These activities are being undertaken in collaboration and cooperation with the NGOs, community-based organizations and voluntary organizations. A larger percentage of the workforce being young and enthusiastic, they are volunteering to undertake these development activities with utmost dedication and concern, and not as a mere obligation to be fulfilled.

It is in this context the International Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility, Inclusive Development and Welfare 2021 is being organised by Chandragupt Institute of Management Patna (CIMP) in association with Xavier Institute of Social Research, Patna. The conference will have the advantage of academicians, researchers, practicing managers, policy makers in the government and the industry, NGOs, industry professionals and all concerned from India and abroad sharing their views, insights and solutions to spur research and interventions for a more vibrant, responsible and inclusive CSR ecosystem. The conference proposes to help the corporate, the government and the researchers to unfathom the hitherto unexplored larger view of CSR compared to the existing “myopic view” leading to fast-track societal development.
