Social Entrepreneurship and Corporate Social Responsibility

Social Entrepreneurship and Corporate Social Responsibility means using ethical business or private sector approaches to create or expand market-oriented responses to social or environmental problems. Whether you are developing a micro-lending project for low-income teens in your community to start small businesses, implementing an Employee Volunteer Program, donating a percentage of your profits to a local organization, or starting a foundation at your company, you are involved in the Social Entrepreneurship and Corporate Social Responsibility Pathway!

Some professions in this pathway include a risk manager at a microfinance organization, a social impact investment analyst, and a social compliance specialist/manager for a company.

There is a misconception that community engagement is limited to the nonprofit and public sector and to individuals. However, the private sector is a crucial part of responsible community engagement, and that is what makes Social Entrepreneurship and Corporate Social Responsibility such an important and unique Pathway of Community Engagement. Key issues cannot fully be addressed if the private sector is not a part of the solution.
