About: Making Business Better by Leading with Empathy
Companies are no longer responsible for simply making money. In the face of gridlocked political systems and partisan divisions, the purview of corporations and their executives has been transformed. Lately, leaders have been stepping up to shoulder greater responsibility for their employees and communities. Yet, a healthy skepticism remains around the impact of and motivation behind corporate activism. Are leaders making meaningful changes with quantifiable results or are they reactively taking a stand, without real progress?
WE Global CEO and Founder Melissa Waggener Zorkin will join Quartz CEO Zach Seward on his weekly LinkedIn series “Make Business Better” to share guidance on how leaders can talk about complex societal issues with their employees — and consumers — with a sense of vulnerability, conviction and impact.
