Large corporations have been amassing huge profits at the expense of their customers, their employees, the environment, and society as a whole. Unfortunately for these corporations, the democratization of information has given consumers the power to demand transparency from the businesses they interact with and hold them accountable for their actions. These days, we don't just care about the products and services that businesses create; we care about the companies behind them, their actions, and how those goods are produced.
In this chat, I hope to:
- Introduce you to the core concepts of corporate social responsibility
- Offer suggestions for how corporations can become more ethical
- Help you identify companies (and employers) that are genuinely committed to social responsibility.
