Regardless of how you view corporate responsibility, there is no denying that it has been increasingly grabbing more news space in mainstream and alternative media than ever before. Especially in the wake of the ongoing BP oil spill fiasco, there remain some core questions regarding the extent, criteria and involvement of CSR that could use some honest answering. Whether you ask these questions as involved consumers or informed professionals, the answers remain central to the heart of our daily decision making: How do personal accountability and responsible actions extend to the brand I work for and associate myself with?

I turned to consulting expert and CEO of Korngold Consulting, Alice Korngold, who helps companies build fully integrated CSR strategies, including leadership development through nonprofit board service. (See below for more info on Korngold Consulting.) Bluntly candid and extremely relevant, the following Q&A should help you demystify CSR on the social, environmental, corporate and personal levels.

Also, stay tuned later this week for the complete interview, where we discuss her experience with company boards and nonprofits, what a good integrated CSR strategy involves, how the changing economic landscape is redefining MBA curricula, and dig deeper into the many aspects that together translate into corporate social responsibility.
