Join us for our final fall member luncheon featuring Jim O’Toole, Professor Emeritus Marshall School and Founding Director of the Neely Center for Ethical Leadership in conversation with Professor Ali Abbas, Former Director of the Neely Center for Ethical Leadership.  The powerful American Business Roundtable recently made headlines in the US and UK when its CEO members pledged to “do well by all our stakeholders”–even if that entailed violating their long-espoused commitment to put the interests of shareholders first.  James O’Toole, author of THE ENLIGHTENED CAPITALISTs,  assess the likelihood that this pledge to put the public good ahead of shareholder profit can, and will, be kept. He thus explores the question:  Is investor capitalism compatible with virtuous corporate behavior?
