A total of 39 college professors and instructors from 15 colleges and universities in Metro Manila and Batangas attended the whole day Consultative Workshop on Social Responsibility and Governance held on September 24 at the Ateneo Graduate School of Business (AGSB) Amphitheatre.

Organized by the League of Corporate Foundations (LCF), AGSB, Management Association of the Philippines (MAP), and the Philippine Council of Deans and Educators for Business (PCDEB), the workshop aimed at: 

  • Reviewing the provisions of CHED Memorandum Order 39 Series of 2006, as well as possible revisions to the Memo that are presently being considered;
  • Review of the syllabus on Social Responsibility and Governance that was developed by LCF in partnership with the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the PCDEB, with inputs from the Governance Committee of MAP; and
  • Presenting teaching strategies as well as instructional materials that are available to enhance the teaching of Social Responsibility and Governance, including cases, reference materials, and resource persons and organizations. 

The workshop programme consisted of lectures in the morning session and break-out sessions in the afternoon, where the faculty members participated in a moderated discussion of syllabus content, teaching strategies, and instructional/ reference materials on Social Responsibility and Governance.

The teacher-participants were welcomed by Dean Albert Buenviaje of AGSB and Ms. Lydia Enrile, member of the LCF Advisory Council and Chair of the CSR Committee of MAP. Dr. Catherine Castañeda, Director IV of CHED-NCR gave the teachers updates from the Commission on Higher Education. Mr. Rex Drilon, President of The Institute of Corporate Directors, briefed the teachers on Good Governance while Ms. Marilou Erni, General Manager of Petron Foundation talked about Corporate Social Responsibility. Dean Conrad Iñigo, Chair of the CHED Technical Committee for Business Administration, updated the teachers on the proposed latest revisions to CHED Memo 39-2006. Teacher-participants expressed the need for more workshops in the other regions and for more materials such as videos, field visits, local reference materials, and link up with industry.

During the workshop break-out sessions, the teachers came up with their own ideas on improving the syllabus, and shared their own teaching strategies and resource materials in teaching Social Responsibility and Governance. The breakout sessions were moderated by Dr. Virginia Rosas of Letran and PCDEB, Dr. Carolina Guina of AGSB, and Mr. John Michael Olaco of the Far Eastern University. Ms. Pamela Castro of Pilipinas Shell Foundation and Mr. Chito Maniago of CEMEX Philippines also served as moderators.

To end, Dr. Benito Teehankee, Chair and Associate Professor of De La Salle University’s Management and Organization Department, gave an inspiring speech to the teachers, reminding them of their critical role in nation-building.

Providing much-needed support to the workshop are the Ateneo Graduate School of Business, the Management Association of the Philippines, and the Bato-Balani Foundation, Inc.

LCF Begins the “LCF Forest”

Eighty-two environment enthusiasts joined the tree planting activity of the League of Corporate Foundations (LCF) on September 22 at Ipo Watershed, Norzagaray, Bulacan. As promised in its LCF CSR Expo last July 2012, six hundred sixteen seedlings were planted for the same number of delegates who participated in the two-day conference and exhibit. 

LCF, led by its Environment Committee, partnered with the Manila Water Company (MWC) and the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) in choosing the three-hectare planting site, dubbed the “LCF Forest”. A Memorandum of Agreement was signed by the three organizations last 15 August 2012. 

The half-day tree planting activity received enthusiastic volunteers from BPI Foundation, Energy Development Corporation, Lopez Group Foundation, Philam Foundation, TeamAsia, Toyota Motor Philippines Foundation, UCPB-CIIF Foundation, and the League of Corporate Foundations. 

LCF Trustee Ms. Monette Hamlin welcomed the volunteers and explained that the LCF Forest will be planted with indigenous seedlings of kupang (Parkia Timoriana) and narra (Pterocarpus indicus) within three years. MWC and MWSS, as LCF’s partners, will monitor the site’s growth.
