New Partnership Focuses On Women & Corporate Social Responsibility

SeaTrust Institute and Vision2Lead are pleased to announce an innovative new public-private partnership!

Together, we aim to translate United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities focused on women helping women. This partnership leverages the power of two women-directed organizations, SeaTrust Institute, and Vision2Lead, to engage CSR leaders with training and projects that uplift global women in sustainability endeavors. As part of impacting critical environmental and social changes, women are helping women to address issues that are central to a better future for everyone.

Join us for our free International Women’s Day webinar, Women Help Women: Let’s Work Together to Hit SDG Targets!

The United Nations Sustainability Development Goals include 169 targets, of which at least 30 relate directly to the lives of women and girls in a changing environment. Join us Tuesday, March 8, 2016 at 17:00:00 to look  at the critical targets and discuss ways to use corporate social responsibility (CSR) projects, research, and partnerships to create a better future for women and girls.

We will focus on three themes:
1. Access to education and training;
2. Inclusive societies; and
3. Sustainable jobs and entrepreneurship.

Educational, employment, and health care needs of girls and women must be addressed in order to achieve the SDGs. As a member of the United Nations Global Compact, SeaTrust Institute is adding this partnership to its research, educational and climate change adaptation projects as part of our commitments for 2016.

SeaTrust Institute, led by CEO and founder Dr. Lynn Wilson, is a research and educational NGO that is focused on climate change and the environment. Vision2Lead, led by president and founder Dr. Janet Salmons, is a private consulting firm focused on leadership and social responsibility in the information age.  Both leaders have experience in higher education, business, and non-profit/NGO settings. Together, they provide research, educational opportunities and consultations to small and medium-sized businesses, educational institutions, governmental and non-governmental agencies.

I am pleased to be a part of this innovative project! My chapter, “Online Research Ethics: Questions Researchers Ask, Answers Guidelines Provide” is the result of an in-depth qualitative study of our network members’ ethical dilemmas and an analysis of research ethics codes to see whether and how they address social media and online research. I’ve posted a list of codes and resources. Here is a short introduction to my chapter: 

I hope that after you read the book you will join in the network activities. I’ve posted information about coming Tweetchats. The next one is on November 17, on “Ready, set, research!: accessing funds and data.”
