The New Story of Business: Towards a More Responsible Capitalism
The 25th Annual Stakeholder Dialogue will feature R. Edward Freeman, founder of Stakeholder Management.
There has been a wave of new ideas and models for understanding the role of business as embedded in society. From Conscious Capitalism to older ideas like Corporate Social Responsibility, there is a renewed interest in how we can revise the dominant narrative of business. The purpose of this talk is to examine several of these proposals for change, and to offer a set of principles for understanding this multi-faceted "new" story of business. This new narrative must cope with a host of evolving ethical issues that arise due to 21st Century technologies and human understandings.
