ABSTRACT
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a topic of great interest at many levels. To society, CSR can be instrumental in moving toward sustainability and achieving other social goals. For organizations it is a way to do good while improving organizational reputation and brand equity. For an organization's various stakeholders, social responsibility may be interpreted in narrow and specific ways. It is ideal for organizational CSR activities to align with the interests and concerns of the organization's stakeholder groups. However choosing particular CSR activities and directions can be rather challenging if stakeholder groups have interests at odds with one another. In this paper we examine these conflicts and use reactive matching and proactive advocacy strategies to provide prescriptions to practitioners.
