Crossroads: Shanghai’s Newest Network for CSR

It is with great pleasure that I announce Shanghai’s newest networking organization for CSR professionals.

As I have mentioned a number of times, the last 18 months have seen a large number of CSR and NGO professionals move into Shanghai as companies have stabilized China operations.

At the kick off last night were 30 professionals from companies like KPMG, Edelman, B&Q, APCO, Shangri -La, and Corning… all organizations who have all worked to introduce CSR programs into China. In addition, members of the EU Chamber and AMCHAM were also in attendance, and representatives from Hands On Shanghai and Roots & Shoots represented the NGO side.

In addition to a monthly happy hour, we are also publishing a bimonthly newsletter that highlights CSR issues in China, best practices, and gives NGOs an opportunity to present their programs. Click here to download the January – February edition (PDF).

While only the first meeting, the Crossroads team (myself, Eric Arndt, and Charlotte LeGrain) were all excited to see such a strong crowd and we are looking forward to the next event.

If you would like to contribute to the newsletter or be placed on the distribution list, please send an email to [email protected]
