The discussion will focus on Stan’s new book The Challenge for Business and Society: From Risk to Reward, exploring how responsible businesses can step up their efforts to create jobs, reduce poverty, improve education and health, and address climate change issues both domestically and around the world while still generating the economic growth to enrich shareholders and create jobs. The Challenge for Business and Society shows how leaders in business and government can actively balance the growth of business with the needs of society, producing even greater financial returns.

The Challenge for Business and Society: From Risk to Reward provides a fact-based assessment of the role that corporations have played and currently play in addressing some of societies most pressing challenges. It moves past the rhetoric and lays out a compelling case that while some businesses have misbehaved, many more have displayed real, effective leadership.
