CPRT Expert Dialogue with Sarah Bonk and Richard Eidlin of Business for America
Concrete Ways Business Can Protect & Strengthen US Civic Institutions Amidst Polarization

As business leaders are called to step forward to support civic institutions in an increasingly polarized US, they face urgent, practical questions about how to respond:

*) How are firms deciding whether to step forward proactively in strengthening civic health in the US?
*) What is business’ legitimate role in protecting and strengthening civic institutions, and what tensions need to be managed as business gets more involved?
*) What can we learn from companies that are engaging effectively? What positive actions can companies take in the near-term, with so much at stake and tensions so high?

To explore these questions and more, please join us for an interactive dialogue with Sarah Bonk, Founder and CEO of Business for America, and Richard Eidlin, BFA’s National Policy Director… or register to receive the recording.

Business for America (bfa.us) is a non-partisan non-profit founded in 2017 to improve our country’s civic health by increasing civic participation and voter turnout, restoring trust in our elections and democratic institutions, reducing gridlock and polarization, and setting a positive example for business engagement in the political sector. Sarah and Richard bring extensive experience in the private sector and public policy formulation. Elizabeth Doty, Director of the Erb Institute’s Corporate Political Responsibility Taskforce will moderate the conversation.

The Corporate Political Responsibility Taskforce (CPRT)’s Expert Dialogues are in-depth, recorded conversations with academic experts, stakeholder advocates and business practitioners to provide our members and other CPR champions with the expertise and context they need to develop principled, proactive CPR strategies.
