Camp Bow Wow prides itself on giving back to the community, and that is demonstrated by its Bow Wow Buddies Foundation. “The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing urgent medical care funds to dogs who are either homeless or whose parents cannot afford to pay their veterinary bills.” (www.campbowwow.com)
The last section of the report is to show how the Camp Bow Wow Dog Park will operate in an ethical manner and support its social responsibility initiatives in the community.
One of the goals of the task force is to formulate a plan to be presented to the owner, Susan Bell, that includes how the Camp Bow Wow Dog Park will promote an ethical workplace, and how it will give back to the community to support its social responsibility commitment.
Business ethics and social responsibility are topics that some of your team members may not have any experience or context to manage, so as the leader of the task force you want to make sure everyone has the same level of knowledge and understanding. To address this concern, your plan is to have a task force meeting dedicated to the Camp Bow Wow Dog Park ethics and social responsibility.
Your task this week is to create the meeting material that you will need that informs and educates your team of the concepts of ethics and social responsibility, and how it will strengthen the Camp Bow Wow Dog Park operation, reputation, and brand. Below is the meeting agenda that you will cover.
