Mar. 31 /CSRwire/ - Chestnut Hill, MA - In a time of dramatic evolution for the role of the corporation as a citizen, an informed dialogue is essential for advancing the practice of corporate citizenship.

The Center for Corporate Citizenship at Boston College, with financial support from Booz Allen & Hamilton Inc., created an audio presentation to spark that dialogue in corporations and organizations throughout the world.

The audio CD, Voices for Corporate Citizenship, is a conversation with CEOs, business leaders, strategists, and researchers on the forefront of change in American business. The CD is a resource for corporate citizenship professionals, serving as:

- A source of information about what leading companies are thinking, learning and doing about corporate citizenship.
- A source of inspiration for mobilizing resources and building common agendas within their own organization.
- A forum for engagement in an essential and vibrant conversation about the future of corporate citizenship as an industry as well as a company practice.

The CD, produced by the award-winning journalism team Lydon-McGrath, features insights from:

-Bradley Googins, Ph.D., executive director, Center for Corporate Citizenship at Boston College

-Jill Kerr Conway, member, Board of Directors, Nike

-Charles Derber, Ph.D., professor, Boston College, author, Corporation Nation
