How can businesses maintain a moral compass and make principled decisions while still thriving in a capitalist economy? Join host Jason Shen for an insightful IRL + virtual salon with acclaimed author and clinical professor at NYU Stern Alison Taylor as she shares her vision in her new book Higher Ground for ethical leadership and responsible corporate practices amidst our current period of global instability and uncertainty.

In an era of rapid change, political polarization, and overlapping polycrises, businesses face immense pressure to prioritize profits over ethics. Yet, as Alison Taylor compellingly argues in her book “Higher Ground,” companies that stay true to their moral principles can not only weather turbulent times but also drive positive change and long-term success. As a 25 year veteran advisor to global multinationals, Taylor will share from both personal experience and extensive research, exploring how businesses can navigate complex challenges while upholding values like integrity, social responsibility, and environmental stewardship. Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the importance of ethical leadership, stakeholder accountability, and corporate citizenship in today’s volatile global landscape.

Some key questions and subjects to be discussed include:

  • Balancing financial goals with ethical considerations in decision-making
  • Fostering a culture of transparency, accountability, and moral courage within organizations
  • The role of businesses in addressing societal issues and contributing to a sustainable future
  • Case studies of companies that have successfully integrated ethics into their operations
  • Taylor’s views on what needs to change in business and government to address the turbulence ahead

Whether you’re a business leader, entrepreneur, or simply someone passionate about responsible capitalism, this salon promises to be an enlightening and inspiring exploration of how businesses can navigate turbulence while staying grounded in their values.
