Event Details

Where: Bangalore

When: 19th September 2014

Time: 9:30am - 5:30pm

Venue: Hotel IRIS, Brigade Road, Bangalore




There is a lot of buzz around CSR across industries.  As the second quarter is coming to an end, we are observing lot of action in the organizations. Many companies are busy putting together CSR committee and creating CSR policy, a few have completed this exercise and now in the process of identifying CSR projects, but there are still a few who have to still initiate the process. We also observe that many companies are grappling with the implementation issues and need help in not only policy creation, identification of projects/programs and create the entire structure around it.  


Following the huge success of our the capacity building workshop in Bangalore on 17th June, and an overwhelming request for another one, we are pleased to announce we are back with CSR Essentials, One Day Capacity Building Workshop for CSR professionals. The workshop will not just explain the law in detail, but also equip the team to create the structure of the CSR initiative and implement it in your organization.


The day-long workshop will be held at Bangalore on 19th September at Hotel Iris, Brigade Road. This workshop is designed and conducted by Gayatri Subramaniam, Convener & Chief Program Executive National Foundation for Corporate Social Responsibility (NFCSR) IICA.


Being one of the companies that have to be compliant with CSR Law, we at Social Equity are sure; you would not like to miss this opportunity to get your CSR team members trained by the person, who was part of the team that formulated the rules.
