Do the responsibilities of business change when there are social problems or problems with other institutions? Immigration, Brexit, the election of Donald Trump, and the emergence of populism and nationalism on both sides of the Atlantic have raised some ethical challenges for business leaders. Based on a book by the same name that includes chapters by top business ethics scholars in North America and Europe, this webinar will tackle several aspects of these questions as they relate to business and politics, the environmental responsibilities of business, the social and political impact of technology, immigration, the impact of social turmoil on organizational leadership, and broader questions of CSR (corporate social responsibility), leadership, and governance in times of social turmoil. Join the lively webinar by ILA Lifetime Leadership Legacy honoree Joanne B. Ciulla and her co-editor to hear insider information about this comprehensive new book in the Studies in Edward Elgar’s Transatlantic Business Ethics series.
