How Business Can Do the Right Thing in a Turbulent World
A fresh, realistic guide to help companies and leaders navigate ethical challenges and risks, build trust, and achieve long-term strategic advantage in a volatile global landscape. Simply maximizing shareholder value while not breaking the law is no longer a workable operating model.
In this session, New York University ethics professor Alison Taylor argues that amid stakeholder demands and transparency pressures, we need a new, more dynamic approach to doing the right thing.
Taylor illustrates this complex, risky environment and provides a blueprint for how leaders should rethink and reshape their
practices. She will show leaders how business can navigate this messy paradigm shift, build trust, and achieve long-term strategic advantage in a turbulent world.
