    February 5, 2008

PR Newswire’s ProfNet expert network has partnered with, the Corporate Social Responsibility Newswire, to form a social network for people who are experts in corporate social responsibility (CSR) issues.

ProfNet CSRWire

This new social network will allow corporate social responsibility experts to congregate and share your expertise with your peers and with the media.

The new Corporate Social Responsibility sits amongst the other channels within ProfNet. PR Newswire describes it as a place “where experts in diversity, philanthropy, socially responsible investing, environment, human rights, workplace issues, business ethics, community development and corporate governance, can connect directly with journalists who are working on relevant stories, in addition to interacting and sharing ideas and information with each other.”

According to PR Newswire, starting right now, ProfNet is “transmitting daily media opportunities on CSR-related topics” to communications professionals representing ProfNet experts. In addition, CSR experts that are paying members of ProfNet can create profiles within the ProfNet database for access by media and other experts. Subscribers to ProfNet search the database using keywords such as environment, green business, and sustainability to find these profiles and connect with experts directly.

ProfNet is an online community of sorts that consists of academics, government officials, business people, non-profit executives, and other subject matter experts. Through ProfNet, these experts can connect with the media and non-media professionals. ProfNet Opportunities allows the media to send short descriptions of the stories they’re working on and the type of experts they’re looking for to the experts in the ProfNet database.
