Why is Community Service important to the International Business Society?
Because working towards social justice is an especially important way to foster community within the society itself as well as gain a better understanding of the world today. Community service lets us interact with people inside and outside of the Saint Joseph’s University community and gives us the opportunity to learn from the people we serve. Working with diverse populations, being able to listen to others, and placing oneself in new situations are central to the work of an International Businessperson, and community service is extremely prevalent in multinational corporations. The skills that we learn while serving will aid us in our careers as well as give us the satisfaction of working with and for others to foster an international community that values equality. Service is a necessity for all Jesuit organizations, and the International Business Society could not flourish without community service.
