“To whom, for what and how is the modern corporation responsible?”

The rights and responsibilities of business have prompted intense debate since the advent of modern capitalism. Join us on September 7 for a half-day conference sponsored by the Center for Ethical Business Cultures as Minnesota business leaders and the authors of a landmark 2012 publication — Corporate Responsibility: The American Experience — share insights from their exploration of 200 years of American business, economic, social and political history. What is corporate responsibility? Where did this idea originate? How has it come to be a factor in business decision making?
 
Commissioned by the Center for Ethical Business Cultures (CEBC) at the University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business, Corporate Responsibility: The American Experience traces ideas and practices across nearly two centuries.  It is a story with many threads: visionaries, rogues, social reformers, labor leaders, political activists (radicals and moderates) and a productive, innovative economy.

The conference is free and open to the public.
