Research Outline

Corporate Social Responsibility: Big Tech


To have a broad understanding of the current state of philanthropy in big tech with a focus on the reasons why these companies should be more focused on corporate social responsibility (CSR) instead of only profit. An ideal response would include a few examples of what unique and innovative things are being done by big tech companies in the Fortune 50 surrounding "Corporate Social Responsibility" and "Corporate Philanthropy." Some statistics would be useful as well. A hypothetical example of that would be "Eighty percent of global tech companies are moving towards having a social impact benchmark and team in place."

Early Findings

Summary Of Our Early Findings Relevant To The Goals

  • Our initial hour of research focused on ensuring that the questions asked could be answered with publicly available sources, and then providing several relevant and salient data points that set the table for future research.
  • As discussed at the top of the document, we were not provided a geographic focus for this project, so we assumed a broad approach and looked globally. If a more targeted approach is desired, for example, the United States, this would have to be clearly communicated to us in any reply.
  • Please select one or more of the options provided in the proposed scoping section below.
