Corporate Social Responsibility Revisited

All day
Through September 11, 2020
Virtual Conference

Sep. 10

In 1970, the Nobel Prize–winning economist Milton Friedman wrote a landmark op-ed for The New York Times on the role a business should play in society. Fifty years later, his views continue to spark lively debates among professionals across industries. Join this conversation at Corporate Social Responsibility Revisited, a new global virtual conference from Chicago Booth on Thursday, September 10.

We will welcome practitioners, professors, and policymakers representing a wide variety of perspectives and backgrounds to discuss and debate the role of the corporation in corporate social responsibility, including environmental sustainability, corporate governance, and gender and racial diversity in the workplace.

Each of our three global campuses in ChicagoLondon, and Hong Kong will host a portion of the conference throughout the day. At the conclusion of the Chicago portion of the conference, the conversation will continue with a two-day event hosted by the Stigler Center for the Study of the Economy and the State entitled Political Economy of Finance 2020: Should Corporations Have a Social Purpose? We welcome you to attend one or all.
