What is Personal Social Responsibility (PSR)?

Personal social responsibility may appear to be a new concept in relation to corporate social responsibility, but it is a concept as old as The Golden Rule -- do unto others as you would have done to you. PSR expands on this by promoting a proactive stance towards positively influencing and affecting the people and environments around you

How Does an Individual Become Socially Responsible

Being socially responsible in one's personal life everyday can be as difficult as sticking to a diet. To be a truly socially responsible individual not only requires participating in socially responsible activities like recycling, volunteering and mentoring, but to actually make it a lifestyle. Only through a commitment to embrace and embed social responsibility into your personal value and belief system can you truly become socially responsible in all you do.
Embracing PSR means doing your part to help the environment, volunteering your time to those in need, mentoring our youth, and being conscientious and courteous in all you do. Each of the speakers below is a champion for the one of these aspects of personal social responsibility.
Drawing from a unique set of experiences, each of APB's speakers on PSR are passionate about helping individuals realize the importance of living responsibly. Whether you need a speaker to inspire you to take the next step, or to help you motivate your community, we have a speaker who can provide you with the resources and tools you will need to have an open and honest discussion about what steps you need to take to be considered socially responsible.
