CPRT Expert Dialogue: Economic Dynamism, Racial Equity & Fatigue: 3 Reasons CPR Matters to CEO’s
October 28, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm EDT
A CPRT Expert Dialogue with Lisa Lewin, CEO of General Assembly
Many companies are struggling with the range of issues where they are being asked to take a stand — from racial equity, to LGBTQ+ rights, climate change, and increasingly, the functioning of our civic institutions.
What is going on? Why are CEO’s being called on to speak to civic, political or societal issues so often…and how should they respond?
Please join us for an in-depth conversation with Lisa Lewin, CEO of General Assembly, Member of the Steering Group Member of the Leadership Now Project, and former Board member of the Center for Responsive Politics, to explore:
- Why does CPR (corporate political responsibility) matter to business? To society?
- How does CPR apply to the Racial Equity pledges companies made in the past few years?
- Do companies have a role in the reform and renewal of civic institutions?
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.
