This interactive dialogue is designed for sustainability, brand, DEI, and government affairs professionals interested in exploring: What should firms be thinking about, as they consider their political engagements in 2021 and beyond? How can companies better align the full range of their political activities with their values, purposes and commitments to sustainability and stakeholders? What does it mean to practice transparency, accountability and responsibility at a firm-wide level? Elizabeth Doty, Director of the Corporate Political Responsibility Taskforce, and Terry Nelidov, Managing Director of the Erb Institute will moderate the discussion.
We will explore the personal integrity challenges faced by CSOs, CMOs, and other staff in confronting potential contradictions in their firms’ activities; and the internal and external influence skills needed to help their organization sustain integrity, trust, and impact.
