Special HE Anniversary workshop with Dr. Jessica Smith Sep 5, 3-4 PM in Ballroom A with refreshments!
Time: 3-4 PM, with refreshments
Location: Ballroom A
Presenter: Dr. Jessica Smith
Abstract: The rise of corporate social responsibility (CSR), the social license to operate, ESG (Environment-Social-Governance), and Justice40 signals that debates about the public accountabilities of businesses and universities continue to be hotly contested. In this workshop, participants will learn how STEM practice and research can contribute to a variety of desired social goals, from social acceptance to social justice. The first step is identifying the inherent social dimensions of apparently “technical” problems. The workshop will also share strategies for integrating CSR and ESG into teaching and learning.
