CPRT Expert Dialogue: Corporate Political Responsibility in a World on Fire, Part 2

October 14, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm EDT

Corporate Political Responsibility in a World on Fire, Part 2
A CPRT Expert Dialogue with Professor Rebecca Henderson, Harvard Business School

In March, we spoke with Professor Rebecca Henderson about the need for business to take an active role in supporting the institutions of capitalism and democracy, in a world where the dangers of climate change and inequality were becoming more and more apparent.

Now, looking ahead to challenges of rebuilding an economy that offers opportunity, accelerating action on climate, and averting future civic crises in a world of continued polarization, businesses face new questions about when and how to engage in civic, societal and political issues.

  • Why must we revise capitalism’s “rules of the game” to address climate change and inequality?
  • What is business’ role in addressing polarization and distrust of democratic institutions?
  • How can businesses reduce the risk of acting alone to address these systemic challenges?

​Please join us for an in-depth conversation with Rebecca Henderson, John and Natty McArthur University Professor at Harvard and author of Reimagining Capitalism in a World on Fire (Short-listed for McKinsey’s Business Book of the Year, 2020).

The Corporate Political Responsibility Taskforce (CPRT) provides forums, foresight and frameworks to help companies better align their political influences with their commitments to values, purpose, sustainability and stakeholders. Our Expert Dialogues are in-depth, recorded conversations where our Expert Affiliates, Stakeholder Advisors, Network Partners and other colleagues share their expertise and answer questions about pressing CPR issues.
