National Roundtable on
Nurturing an Eco System for Social Impact

How Public Policy and CSR can act as Agents for Social Change


It has been widely acknowledged that Government and business houses can function as crucial agents of social change through the mechanisms of Public Policy and CSR respectively. They can provide leadership and direction to the society through multiple policies and corporate initiatives taken in this regard. The need of the hour is for Public Policy and CSR to be synergized in a collaborative effort to bring about the desired social change. If both the government and business are able to align their objectives with this vision, are imbued with the passion for it, and are able to translate their objectives into a mission mode, the desired goal can be achieved with considerable success. The Round Table on “Nurturing an Eco System for Social Impact” seeks to understand the role played by these two agencies in accelerating the process of social change.
