Join our new series of mini-workshops on CPR in action!

June 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm EDT

A practical introduction to the Erb Institute’s Corporate Political Responsibility Taskforce and the Leadership Now Project’s Corporate Guide to Navigating U.S. Political Risk

In this critical election year, executives in every business function are faced with unprecedented risks and uncertainties related to an increasingly polarized and volatile US political landscape, from supply chain disruption to worker conflict, specific geographic exposures, and even political violence.

During our April 10 event, 2024 Election Readiness and Corporate Political Responsibility, the Erb Institute’s CPR Taskforce offered Six Readiness Strategies for a Proactive, Principled Approach to help leaders prepare for these electoral, governing, and societal risks, drawing on the Erb Principles for Corporate Political Responsibility.

Now, we are delighted to welcome Lauren Caplan of the Leadership Now Project for a mini-workshop to help leaders explore the first of those strategies, Conducting a Political Risk Assessment, using Leadership Now’s Corporate Guide to Navigating U.S. Political Risk.

In this first of a new series of action-oriented CPR mini-workshops, participants will explore how to: 

  • Engage peers in a step-by-step process to analyze political risk 
  • Identify specific geographic exposures and “hot spots”  
  • Conduct an in-depth cross-functional analysis of key risk areas 
  • Plan next steps, using your risk assessment for decision-making and action 

This interactive session will be facilitated by Elizabeth Doty, Director of the Erb Institute’s Corporate Political Responsibility Taskforce, and will include: 

  • An introduction to the Corporate Political Responsibility Taskforce 
  • Instructions for using the Corporate Guide to Navigating U.S. Political Risk 
  • Breakout sessions for discussion and questions 
  • Recommended resources and in-house follow-up workshops  

We invite executives in Risk Management, Public Affairs, Legal, Communications, Sustainability, Human Resources, DEI, and other affected functions, as well as CPR champions and academic experts from other sectors interested in a constructive, non-partisan, principles-based discussion. 

Light pre-reading and data-gathering suggestions will be provided one week before the session.  

To enable privacy for executive participants, this session will be hosted as a webinar and no participants will be recorded. 

Lauren Caplan is the Managing Director and Head of Democracy-Aligned Investing at the Leadership Now Project, a national membership organization of business and thought leaders committed to fixing American democracy.  

Elizabeth Doty is the Director of the Erb Institute’s Corporate Political Responsibility Taskforce (CPRT) a peer-to-peer forum for executives who want to help their companies apply a more proactive, integrated and principled approach to civic and political affairs.
