WEBINAR | The Business Roundtable's Statement on the Purpose of a Corporation in a COVID-19 World

Event Description



Last September, the Business Roundtable published the Statement on the Purpose of a Corporation,  which received a lot of attention for its focus on the creation of stakeholder value. In the intervening time, the COVID-19 pandemic has created major legal challenges for every business. In this presentation, we will offer some observations about the original Business Roundtable statement and then shift to the business, legal, and ethical challenges to managers in the current context, in which the COVID-19 pandemic requires businesses to make hard choices about their interactions with stakeholders while simultaneously seeking to maintain their long-term viability.
