CSR Events in collaboration with DP World

Event information

START DATE 06 December 2020


END DATE 06 December 2020

The aim of these events was to strengthen its focus on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), governance and ethics. The students participated in three competitions and attended guest talks, where they had to audit the CSR activities of DP World, including:

  • Guest Talk: Accountants, Purpose and Sustainable Organizations, Sharon Machado, Portfolio Head of Business Reporting, ACCA
  • CSR Image Competition
  • CSR Auditor of the Year
  • Corporate Social Innovation Competition 

The competitions were conceptualized and designed by the Accounting and Finance faculty. Many thanks to Mariam, Rashita and Vijaya who spent tireless hours in setting up guidelines and running the competitions in line with industry strategies. Special mention to Rashita, who collaborated with DP World for the events and secured internships for the students. And, to Vijaya, who not only secured the cash sponsorship from AFL but also coordinated with all the external judges.  

The students benefited immensely from this initiative as they got first hand experience on how businesses incorporate CSR activities within their regular course of action. The internal judges including Rhoderick Romano, Matthew Brown, Andrew Mackenzie and I along with external judges Shridhar Sampath from Motivaluate and Kavitha Fernando from Al Futtaim Logistics were beyond impressed with the work of our students. Many thanks to all the judges for taking out time from their extremely busy schedules to accommodate our request and judging the events.

The scores are in and we would like to invite you for the finale on Sunday, 6th December, where we will hear from the Head of Group Sustainability and Impact, DP World and announce the winners. The winners will get Virtual Internship at DP World and cash prizes sponsored by Al Futtaim Logistics.
