As we often say, integrated thinking and reporting is a journey. And the U.S. companies on that journey are taking diverse and exciting approaches. In an effort to expand our list of sample reports in our community, we have formed a working group to find useful rubric to highlight different characteristics of reports.
In our meeting this month, we are going to hear from Elizabeth Castillo, Assistant Professor at Arizona State University. Elizabeth assigned the rubric to her class. She'll share the results, highlighting key characteristics of 17 companies and organizations by her students. Then we hope to have a conversation about next steps that we can take as a community to build on this approach.
Our goal is to expand our examples database and to continue to broaden the reach of our group and our message. Hope you'll join us!
