Politics and Business

April 26, 2022 | NH Institute of Politics

Business executives have traditionally avoided political controversy. But in a surprising and dramatic turn of events, many companies are now taking public positions on a number of divisive issues. Steering into the political storm presents both risks and opportunities. In this installment of our series "Corporations and the Common Good: How Should Businesses Respond to Social Issues?", Dr. Daniel Korschun will present the latest research on corporate activism and provide a view of what lies ahead.

Korschun last spoke at Saint Anselm College in 2015 as a panelist for "Market Basket - Inside an Historic Corporate Governance Crisis."
