Dear Council Community Readers,
The Council editorial team will be on a welcome summer break from Wednesday 31st July to Monday 26th August. I’d like to thank you personally and on behalf of the Community team for your continued readership of our published articles – both on the blog and in our quarterly magazine Global Voice. We’ve had a great academic year with a combined blog, magazine, Twitter, LinkedIn and website visibility and readership rate of 808,000 across the globe and that’s your success as much as it is ours!
Wishing you all a super summer and please feel free to join us on Twitter @The_CoBS to keep updated with all the latest CSR-related news and knowledge.
This year’s highlights have included 6 issues of Global Voice magazine including two special issues – an Asia-Pacific focus and a Europe focus. Of the 83 articles published online since last July, here are 6 of the best blog-busters, one from each of the member schools of the Council on Business & Society!
