I am very fortunate to have a job which focuses on corporate responsibility & sustainability. My vision for CCR is that companies and organizations which are dedicated to driving corporate responsibility efforts, utilize the resources provided by CCR to thrive, and maximize their impact.

Businesses, large and small, have an important role to play in shaping the future of our communities. The impact is local and global. There are so many great examples of organizations that make healthy profits in tandem with making a positive impact in the community. Profits and philanthropy can, and should, coexist.

One area of focus for CCR that resonates with me is the concept of the Power of One, which reinforces the importance of individual responsibility to influence change in our communities. We cannot rely on corporations to donate money and time to important causes; we need to understand and exercise our right to do the same consistently. Every positive seed sown into the life of an individual or community will reap the change that we seek, and multiply!

I give my time to the Council for Corporate Responsibility because I want this world to be a better place for future generations. I will no longer sit on the sidelines and watch things happen. I CAN help. I WILL help. Will you? Are you in?
