6th Birmingham CSR Summit

This year, the Birmingham CSR Summit will be held on Friday 7 September at Aston Business School. Our focus will be to examine the future direction of social responsibility of business in the region.
The agenda will include:
An Opening Address by Andy Street, Mayor of West Midlands outlining WMCA strategy and priorities for community and social issues.
Breakout Workshops examining key issues of Education, Homelessness and Social Isolation; each will be facilitated by an acknowledged expert in the field.
A Keynote Address, to be given by Professor Asif Ahmed, Executive Dean of Aston Medical School, looking at the health deficit in our less advantaged communities and impact that the new Medical School will have in overcoming this dire problem in our city.
A Panel Debate looking at the formats of CSR that business and entrepreneurs might be adopting going forward; this will be facilitated by Sir Michael Lyons, Chairman of English Cities Fund (and formerly Chairman BBC Trust and Chief Executive Birmingham City Council).
Two Future Business Leaders from Aston’s current MBA cohort will conclude by sharing their perspectives on the future direction of responsible business.
This is the most exciting line up for many years and a crucial signpost as to the future prospects for corporate responsibility in the region. Whether you’re a senior business leader, a CSR professional or representative of a third sector organisation this is the must-do responsible business event of the year.
