You Decide! Corporate and Social Responsibility
Review “You Decide! Corporate and Social Responsibility” and answer the discussion question:
- What is an organization’s responsibility to its community?
Week Four “Big Picture” Exercise

Many people contend that businesses have a greater responsibility to contribute to the community, while others just as strongly contend that individuals have an equal or greater responsibility to contribute to the community. What are your thoughts on that, and why do you believe that way?
