Guidelines for this assignment


Your Team Paper/Presentation Assignment: You will work in teams to analyze the ethical behavior of one organization using the CSR pyramid. The detail for this assignment is on BB. When your team presents at the end of the semester, to be safe, choose ONE person to present on behalf of your team. I expect that the entire team will help prepare the presentation.

Using the Pyramid of Corporate Social Responsibility, prepare a 10-minute group PowerPoint presentations and a three-page paper about one company’s efforts to be a Socially Responsible Corporate Citizen. References: use/list 5 sources (one can be the company website).

Your paper must include three (3) of pages of text, plus: a title page; an executive summary; and a references page. Include tables, figures, and appendices as needed. Format your paper in APA style using the template provided below. Since your paper should inform your presentation, the headings provided on the template are mapped over from Dr. Mishra's PDF slides titled “320 CSR Group Paper/Presentation.” 

The CSR Team Paper is 25% of your final grade.
