ASQ: Benefit Corporations and B Corp Certification
May 25 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Benefit corporations and B Corp certification
25 May 2022 19:00
Networking Opportunity Starts at 18:30
Webinar in English (Bilingual Q&A Bilingue)
Some companies are building socially and environmentally responsible practices into their DNA by becoming a benefit corporation and/or B Corp certified. However, what this means is often misunderstood. This session aims to help clarify what being a “B Corp” is about while framing discussion in the context of the larger trend towards environmental, social, and governance reporting and auditing.
About our Presenter: Dr. Carolee Rigsbee, PhD is an Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois Springfield and a senior member of the ASQ. Carolee specializes in strategic management and draws on extensive industry and quality assurance leadership experience (nuclear, aerospace & defense, food manufacturing, and other industries) in her research, teaching, and service. These experiences and her deep interest in corporate social responsibility, collectively inform her academic work which is focused on novel organization designs that hold the potential to strengthen stakeholder voice and reduce obstacles to economic, social, and environmental goal achievement (e.g., benefit corporations, using blockchain as an enabling technology in value chain management and governance).
Your participation will be worth 0.5 ASQ RU (Recertification Units).
