Elizabeth Doty

Elizabeth Doty has served as the Director of the Erb Institute’s Corporate Political Responsibility Taskforce since its launch in 2021. For 30 years, she has helped leading companies implement their business strategies, improve employee engagement and retain customers by aligning across functions and delivering on their commitments.

Since 2012, Elizabeth has focused on business’ role in addressing larger societal challenges and strengthening trust in civic institutions. As a Lab Fellow at the Edmond Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard she led research on the challenges of “commitment drift” in large organizations. Her book, “The Compromise Trap,” was published in the aftermath of the 2008 Financial Crisis. Based on that work, she was recognized as a Top Thought Leader in Trust, and has designed and led executive-level programs for Fortune 500 companies, Stanford Graduate School of Business, Presidio Graduate School and the US Department of Defense. Elizabeth earned her MBA from Harvard Business School in 1991 and serves on the advisory boards of several non-partisan initiatives working to reduce destructive political conflict and promote US civic renewal.
