It's Time to Redefine 'Business as Usual': Exploring Stakeholder Capitalism

The concept of shareholder primacy, that a business's only role is to create the best possible financial returns for shareholders, directors and investors, has led to such a narrow focus of business directors and investors that all other stakeholders — workers, communities, the environment — who are impacted by a business's operations are not considered. This system design flaw has created a multitude of social and environmental issues around the globe, but there are potential fixes currently gaining traction that could serve as a better way forward. This session will take a look at how we got here, define key terms, and look at stakeholder capitalism in action with this panel of experts and practitioners.
