For too long, the policy community has shouldered the daunting task of fixing capitalism. But that approach has overlooked an essential constituency: America’s business community.

Without more leadership from the business community, organizations will continue wrestling with issues such as skill shortages, soaring health care costs, trade spats, and stark income and gender inequality. Learn how corporate leaders across all industries can apply their business acumen to make capitalism deliver more value to their organizations.

Insights from this webcast:

  • The top economic and educational issues facing capitalism, and how those issues are hurting business;
  • How employees in the private sector can help fix capitalism independent of policymakers, at their very own organizations; and
  • How employees in the private sector can help fix capitalism through policy channels at the local, state, and federal levels.

Who Should Attend: Those in the private sector who want to apply their business acumen so the U.S. economic system delivers more value to their organizations.
