Panel talk Tuesday to examine how businesses can use their power for good

Making money is good, but making money while remaining socially responsible is even better.

The topic of corporate social responsibility will be the focus of this year’s Business Matters panel discussion, being held Tuesday, April 4 at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre.

Making Business Matter is the third in a series of panel talks organized by Brock University’s Goodman School of Business. Previous Business Matters discussions have focused on the music industry and innovation in business.

Panelists this year include Betty-Lou Souter, CEO, Community Care of St. Catharines and Thorold; Jim Letwin, CEO and Co-owner, Jan Kelley; Shannon Passero, Owner, Shannon Passero Design; and Todd Green, Assistant Professor, Goodman School of Business.

The four panelists will discuss the latest trends in corporate social responsibility, how organizations choose which causes and initiatives to support, and how they communicate their social responsibility efforts to the public.

The event starts at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Free tickets are required for entry and are available online, by calling 905-688-0722 or through the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre box office.

Suggested donations of $5 for Community Care of St. Catharines and Thorold will be accepted at the door.
