Like Civil Rights, Gay Liberation, and Black Lives Matter, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a social movement that has evolved with societal demands for change in the workplace. This work looks at the evolution of CSR and the models that have followed like Triple Bottom Line and Corporate Citizenship. Through a community-based workshop CSR is examined by reviewing its history, the basic models, and principles for success, explores why businesses should consider this framework and where the next phase of CSR is headed. Using data from a post-workshop survey participants rated whether they could understand the connections between CSR and the social justice issues we are facing societally and if they were motivated to act at their own organizations.
