Africa Forum on Corporate Social Responsibility

The U.S.-Africa Business Center invites you to the U.S. launch of its inaugural report on corporate social responsibility (CSR) in Africa – Purpose and Prosperity: How U.S. Businesses are Creating Impact in Africa.

The report showcases how U.S. corporate investments across Africa, create beneficial economic and social impact by delivering bottom line value for shareholders and communities in which they operate across the continent. This interactive forum will bring together the African diplomatic corps, U.S. policy makers, business executives, civil society practitioners, and international NGOs to discuss CSR across five themes – education, women and girls empowerment, health and wellness, skills and knowledge transfer, and economic empowerment.
