Sometimes Leaders Just Don’t Understand: The Business Case for Doing What’s Right

Ethics and equity matter. Staying in business matters. These guideposts are not mutually exclusive, though it can often feel as such when making priority decisions. We can commit to doing what’s right, not just what’s easy. However, in order to harness business agility, leverage leadership strategy, and obtain company commitment, we must make it easier to do what’s right.

But how do we make the compelling value case? How do we align our business agility to business integrity? In our session, we will build an initial toolkit to:

- Connect high-integrity initiatives to high-value strategy using tangible business cases
- Highlight inclusive solutions as valuable solutions
- Uncover what’s feeding resistance
- Show that economics and ethics don’t have to be separate
- Increase team literacy around Minimum Ethical Delivery
