From Wall Street to Main Street, social issues are at the heart of debate. What happens or what is said anywhere can be a headline within minutes, yielding both positive and negative consequences.
While boards of directors might be concerned about the effects of their CEO taking a moral stand, they also recognize that not speaking out could hurt a company’s reputation. Some believe that when a corporate leader takes a position that appears grounded in principle, it could add luster to the company’s image, while others feel it embarks on dangerous territory. When faced with issues that may concern their people and humanity at large, and in many cases, their bottom line, should a CEO take a stance or remain silent?
In a time where polarization is at an all-time high and information is shared rapidly, what is the role of the CEO in addressing these issues and how can they navigate these tricky waters? Our experienced panelists will provide insights on managing these complex issues in turbulent times.
