Can 21st Century Capitalism Help Reverse School Failure, Climate Change, and Income Inequality?
As business increasingly funds solutions to educational shortfalls, climate change, and income inequality in today’s divided America, the boundaries among public, private, and civil-sector engagement are blurring. Can stakeholder capitalism take us beyond shareholder primacy to inclusive and informed social and material well-being? Social Finance CEO and Co-Founder Tracy Palandjian joined Roger Ferguson, past President and CEO of TIAA, and Natasha Lamb, Managing Partner and Co-Founder of Arjuna Capital, for a panel discussion of this topic. The panel was hosted by ClassACT HR '73 and moderated by Leigh Hafrey, Senior Lecturer at the MIT Sloan School of Management.
