The New Hampshire Businesses for Social Responsibility (NHBSR) have honored Fiona Wilson, clinical associate professor of strategy, social entrepreneurship and sustainability, with the 2018 Cornerstone Award for exemplary efforts to promote the concepts of corporate social responsibility.

Wilson has demonstrated “the leadership in sustainability we need to magnify in today's world,” Michelle Veasey, executive director of NHBSR, said when the award was announced. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen attended the 17th Annual NHBSR Spring Conference to honor the award winners.

The NHBSR also praised Wilson for her work as executive director of the Center for Social Innovation and Enterprise at UNH’s Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics, describing her as someone who “educates, inspires and empowers the next generation of leaders to affect positive change in their communities.”

In announcing Wilson’s award, the NHBSR also lauded her work with the Social Venture Innovation Challenge to help students develop viable, market-based environmental and social solutions to a variety of pressing community issues.
