Roll of Thunder: Accelerating Corporate Social Responsibility & Responsible Investing Conversations on Race, Ideology & Reform

Event Details

Aug 20, 2020

12:00PM-1:15PM EDT

Remote

Complimentary

Cognizant of the powerful forces shaping public discourse, the Thomson Reuters Institute is pleased to produce a summer-long thought leadership spotlight on race, ideology and reform during a seminal moment in modern society. Our aim is to bring together perspectives from key influencers and power brokers from the academic, practitioner, and regulatory quarters for a series of cordial and earnest dialogues around social upheaval and transformation.

Now more than ever, corporate social responsibility (CSR) and responsible investing (RI) are key criteria for global business. Indeed, thanks to our current activist landscape, the urgency for business leaders to practice greater corporate responsibility around risk mitigation, talent recruitment, cost-savings, and positive PR is merely the opening lap of a broader leadership journey to “do right” by one’s customers, employees and stakeholders and promote a healthy corporate ethos. This conversation offers an important take on how businesses and institutional investors are helping create a transformative impact through CSR with an eye on short- and long-term success.
