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. How can CEOs cut through the noise to set robust environmental and social priorities? When should they speak out on contentious social and political issues—and how? What does it really take to build a healthy organizational culture?
Taylor will show leaders how business can navigate this messy paradigm shift, build trust, and achieve long-term strategic advantage in a turbulent world.
Alison Taylor is a professor at NYU Stern School of Business who has spent decades advising large multinationals on risk, corruption, sustainability, and organizational culture.
