Join Business for America (BFA) online for an informal introduction to our exciting new initiative: Corporate Civic Responsibility.
Businesses of all sizes are embracing the idea that they should not only deliver value to customers and shareholders, but also be a force for greater good in society. While Corporate Social Responsibility has been growing in popularity, the potential for business to contribute to the health of our representative democracy has been mostly overlooked — until now.
Our Corporate Civic Responsibility (CCR) initiative demonstrates that civic health (the way our government and political system operate) is vital to both business interests and the public interest. CCR helps fulfill the business community’s obligation to protect our democratic institutions, both for its own benefit and for the benefit of employees, customers, and other stakeholders. These efforts can elevate the standing of businesses in their communities, improve relationships with employees and customers, and foster greater fulfillment in employees' civic lives.
This is a new approach for the business community, and by getting involved now, you will help bring this vision into reality. We’ll be considering a wide range of activities, such as giving employees time off to vote, providing nonpartisan civic educational programming to employees, or providing support for popular, bipartisan political reforms at the city, state, and federal level.
We’re seeking advice from a small number of business leaders and CSR executives to learn what factors will help make CCR successful, starting with this informal online meeting. Following a brief presentation by Business For America, we will have a group discussion to answer questions and hear your insights.
Your input at this early stage will help shape the future of CCR. We're eager to hear your perspectives and ideas.
