Meet the team behind the CSR Toolkit…
Sara is the team lead of our CSR expertise team. Her primary role is to ensure that both strategy side and the academic side of this team runs smoothly to ensure that it delivers tangible outputs. This currently includes mapping out what tools are the most useful for businesses in developing CSR programmes and developing these tools for public use. Sara is a graduate of the University of Otago and is a solicitor for a top tier firm.
Elle joined Step Changers in mid 2018 and works with Sara in the CSR expertise team to develop CSR tools that businesses can use to help implement their own CSR programmes. Having studied and tutored social marketing at Victoria University, joining Step Changers was a way to continue to learn about how businesses can effect positive social change, and to use that knowledge to make a difference. Outside of Step Changers, Elle is a lawyer at Bell Gully in Wellington.
Arzoo is an expert in Corporate Social Responsibility, having completed her doctorate on responsible business behaviour in Emerging Market Economies and the fluid indigenous forms of CSR models found in these areas. She now focuses on sustainable business practices/CSR in SMEs and the Startup sector. Her expertise in developing this CSR toolkit has been invaluable.
