Does Corporate Social Responsibility Work?

12:30 - 2:00 PM EST

Over the last decade, progressives have embraced the notion that huge, multinational corporations can be pressured into good behavior – that every company can be like Ben and Jerry’s. But how successful has that movement been? And is it the best way to tackle important challenges going forward: from worker rights to global climate change? Please join the Center for American Progress and Democracy: A Journal of Ideas for this lively discussion on the record and future of corporate social responsibility.

Aaron Chatterji, assistant professor of management at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, fellow at the Center of American Progress, and co-author of “Corporate Social Irresponsibility,” Democracy: A Journal of Ideas, Issue #3
