A Seat at the Table: Worker Voice in the New Economy

In the face of heightened expectations and multiple overwhelming challenges—a global pandemic, racial and gender equity reckonings, and a staggering climate crisis—companies are increasingly relying on the knowledge and skill of their entire workforce in order to succeed. As workers weigh in on more operational and strategic issues, is our corporate governance system ready to include workers as partners? Can worker voice in corporate governance make corporate leadership—and American capitalism—better?

In this webinar, we took a a deep dive into learnings from the Business & Society Program’s “Idea Lab on Worker Voice in Corporate Governance” for a discussion moderated by the Ideas Lab’s leader, Miguel Padró. Our panelists explored new policies, practices and thinking to embed and amplify worker voice inside corporate decision making and accountability systems.

Featured speakers:

  • Bianca Agustin, Director of Corporate Accountability, United for Respect
  • Doug Chia, Fellow, Rutgers Center for Corporate Law and Governance
  • Michelle Greene, President Emeritus, Long-Term Stock Exchange
