Does our “socially responsible” corporation structure allow us to have other values besides profit?

Joel Bakan’s book “the New Corporation” and Jennifer Abbot and Joel’s film by the same name, calls out what they call the corporate takeover of society. From gatherings of corporate elites in Davos, to climate change and spiraling inequality, the rise of authoritarian leaders to COVID and racial injustice, our panel of media activists and academics looks at corporations’ devastating power and the systemic changes required. Countering this is a groundswell of resistance worldwide as people take to the streets in pursuit of justice and the planet’s future.

The members of our panel examine how a “just recovery” means addressing the three crises: climate, COVID and capitalism.

Hosted by the Elfenworks Center for Responsible Business and the Commonwealth Club.
