The Role of Corporations in Guarding Healthy Democracy: What Can Your Company Do?


September 29, 2020 / 10-11:30am PT


A thriving economy and business community depend on a healthy democracy. If you’re ignoring the systemic issues in our elections, politics, and governance, you’re missing out on an opportunity to remove roadblocks to your goals. We will hear from leaders with their fingers on the pulse of the state of our civic health—especially how racial justice plays an important role—and concrete ways companies can engage in guarding democracy. Learn what actions your company might consider taking in the coming weeks leading up to the election, as well as sustaining that effort beyond.
