[B Lab Series] The Urgent Case for Stakeholder Governance

Finding Humanity

08-02-2022 • 30 mins

In 1970, the New York Times published Milton Friedman's seminal essay, "The Social Responsibility of Business Is to Increase Its Profits." For more than half a century, Friedman’s doctrine of profit maximization helped accelerate the racial, economic, and environmental injustice we see today.

In our final episode of this special series, we discuss corporate solutions to our broken economic system. We examine stakeholder governance and its role in transforming the business community into a driver of positive change for people and the planet.

Featuring: Massimiliano Pogliani, CEO of Illycaffè, Leo Strine, Senior Fellow of the Harvard Program on Corporate Governance and former Chief Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court, Jessica Yinka Thomas, President and Board Chair of B Academics, and Holly Ensign-Barstow, Director of Stakeholder Governance and Policy at B Lab.
