Dear Friends,

On behalf of all of us at the Berkeley Haas Center for Responsible Business (CRB), I wish you a peaceful and joyous holiday season.

As I reflect upon this past year, two things provide me with great optimism:  1) my family and 2) our wonderful students here at Berkeley Haas.  The strong minds and caring hearts of our students provides me with such incredible hope and we work hard to put the students at the center of everything we do at the CRB. This includes our Peterson Speaker Series, Patagonia Case Competition, Berkeley Sustainable Business & Investment Forum, Microsoft Conference on Business, Technology, & Human Rights, Berkeley Haas Case Studies, our prestigious Moskowitz and Investment for Impact research prizes, and some dozen courses we oversee among a number of activities for which the CRB is home.  Please visit to review more details regarding our many offerings.

As you consider your end of the year giving, please consider the CRB.  We are an entirely self-financed center that does not draw upon our students’ hard earned tuition dollars (nor should we!).  We need your support now more than ever to continue to do what we do.  To make a tax-deductible contribution, please visit here.  Thank you.

My very best wishes,

Robert Strand
Executive Director
Berkeley Haas Center for Responsible Business
