The Doughty Centre for Corporate Responsibility is an action-research centre within Cranfield School of Management. We work closely with academia, business, and other partner organisations and networks to teach, research, and publish (books, articles, reports and practical How-to guides).
To influence current and future business practice we engage with students and business through our CR network (CCRN, Alumni PIN), partnerships, and events.
As well as our core activities we undertake a limited number of consulting assignments and run bespoke course and workshops for business. We speak at and/or chair and facilitate conferences throughout the year.
The Doughty Centre was made possible by a donation of £3m from Nigel Doughty, a Cranfield Distinguished Alumnus and co-chair and co-founder of Doughty Hanson & Co.
