"The Global Compact was launched seven years ago as a call to action to the business community to join forces with the United Nations and other stakeholders to create a more sustainable and inclusive global marketplace. From its inception, the Global Compact has consistently asked its participants to embrace two complementary objectives which together define responsible corporate citizenship. First, internalize the ten principles by integrating them in strategy and operations. Second, undertake partnerships with other stakeholders to advance UN goals. Over the years, the idea and practice of responsible business has evolved significantly. Many lessons have been learned. Overall, participants have made good progress. A commitment to the Global Compact is no longer seen as a defensive approach to avoid damage to brand and reputation. Increasingly it is understood as a strategic framework to manage risks and to create value for business and society at large. Aspiring responsible corporate citizenship requires sustainable efforts, leadership commitment and a willingness to embark on a process of continuous organizational change. However, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to its implementation. Instead, companies are encouraged to develop policies and practices that are best suited to their specific operating environment. All around the world, companies undertake hundreds, if not thousands, of activities in support of the Global Compact. Not all of them can be given the recognition they deserve. For this Inspirational Guide to Implementing the Global Compact, twenty-one companies from all continents, representing a wide range of industry sectors, have been invited to share their experiences and the concrete activities they have developed to address key challenges in the areas of human rights and labour rights, the environment, anti-corruption and partnerships for development. The cases that are presented in this guide illustrate the richness and diversity of practices that companies are engaged in. Together, they truly define corporate citizenship in the spirit of the Global Compact's universal values."--Publisher's description.

Praise for Transforming Learning in Practice "Transformative learning comes to life in this powerful collection of real experiences which put transformative learning into practice in higher education, the workplace, and in community and social change education. Every chapter is full of candid insights from reflective practitioners about the challenges and rewards of engaging in transformative learning. A must-read for adult educators everywhere!" —Sharan B. Merriam, professor emeritus of adult education, University of Georgia "Mezirow and Taylor's book deepens our understanding of a central idea in adult education—that meaningful learning for adults is often triggered by a transformative experience. Readers are provided a rich array of approaches which help them to understand and facilitate transformative learning in multiple settings. Together these practices build a toolkit for those who would support learning that transforms." —Karen E. Watkins, professor, human resource and organization development, Department of Lifelong Education, Administration, and Policy, University of Georgia "Methods to facilitate transformative learning bear intriguing similarities across varied places and spaces. This book breaks through silo thinking and is for educators across formal and informal settings who are concerned with individual or collective transformation, whether in the 'North' or 'South.'" —Shirley Walters, professor of adult and continuing education, University of Western Cape, South Africa
