2020 has been, to say the least, an extremely tumultuous year for everyone. The coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter protests sparked by the death of George Floyd have become inflection points, underscoring the importance of ongoing conversations about how our economy functions. Who does the current system work for? How can it be expanded to include more stakeholders?
“The Reimagining Capitalism Issue” of Ethisphere Magazine comes in three parts. To begin, we look at the ways that the COVID-19 pandemic, and the associated shifts toward remote work, have disrupted ethics and compliance programs–presenting new challenges or new opportunities.
Then, we turn a spotlight onto the vital racial reckoning happening right now in the corporate sector. This includes more information about Ethisphere’s Equity & Social Justice Initiative, including a virtual forum this November.
Finally, we look back at ESG (environmental, social & governance) concerns. This year’s crises have reinforced and hastened shifts towards greater weight for ESG for investors, activists, and within companies, and our readers are on the frontlines of translating ESG into action.
