In this edition of CEO Daily, Fortune’s Alan Murray addresses how CEOs are answering the call for moral leadership and the imperative to adapt to new social and political expectations. The recent actions or statements of several CEOs in light of President Donald Trump’s response to the violence in Charlottesville are the most recent examples.
This very topic was discussed at last year’s FORTUNE + TIME Global Forum at the Vatican, where LRN’s Dov Seidman was one of 100 CEOs to participate. “In rapid order,” he said in December, “the world has not just changed; it has dramatically been reshaped. It operates differently. And it has been reshaped faster than we have reshaped ourselves, our institutions, our businesses and our leadership.” Watch the video.
This timely discussion will continue in New York on September 25, with the launch of The CEO Initiative, focusing on efforts companies are making to address social problems as a core part of their strategy.
